they hype it up but then it's not as bad as they say, if we do get any hail it will be pea size.

That sounds awesome. Baseball helmet, football pads and a baseball bat during a hail storm. Im in. Its a new sport that can only be played a few times a year.

I bet we get no hail or damaging winds.....just a little thunderstorm.

In Lawrence, the thunderstorms tend to split up and go around us, or just weaken before they hit. Its probably due to KU's weather weapon/deflector.

They do tend to miss Lawrence and the surrounding areas.....the big bad ones anyways

boy, that was a whole bunch of nothing except moisture for the grass seed.

Multi, I think I know of a basement depot which should have an abundance of tin foil hats in a nearby county. They actually might help the wifi. I bet you could get a free wall poster of your favorite gun or car thrown into the mix. Also face masks for the epidemic moving up the trade routes.
