Wichita Homes Damaged

Unfortunately, being in a profession to warn the public does not keep meteorologists' homes from being damaged in storms. When we returned, we found quite a bit of damage to the neighborhood.
Poles blown down on North Woodlawn
Dead tree toppled down our block.

Front yard catty-cornered from ours:

Our driveway,

The hail, which had been melting for at least 45 minutes, this nearly 3" across. The ground was completely covered.

And, two holes in our garden window.
The paint was stripped on the west side of the house!

There are many, many homes around Wichita in similar circumstances. Still compared to the near catastrophe (see below), most are counting their blessings.
