To appreciate LL, you had to see – and hear – him (from decent seats in AFH) go set a screen at the top of the key. That’s why the guards loved him

RE: Life On The Beach On July 4th.
I went to Arches National Park on the afternoon of the 4th, and it was practically empty. Pretty cool.
Kind of like a beach… plenty of sand, but no water.
We’ll get to the Pacific on Sunday unless California drops into the ocean after all these earthquakes.

KU’s very own Royce Woolridge ended up playing at grand canyon
RE: Isaiah Moss To Kansas
@BShark Once Doke breaks his third hand Mitch is going play plenty. He knows the college game and he’s going to tear it up this year as best he can–blocking shots, setting screens and taking charges.
I’m cautiously optimistic about Moss, but the Self system thing seems to take transfer guys a while to figure out.
It was a weird weather afternoon from about 3:30 on yesterday in Lawrence. You could tell it was a bad situation: tropical, zero breeze, 80+% humidity, dark for late afternoon. I tracked the cell/storm from when they first sighted it about 45 miles away around 5:00 and figured it’d die out before it got to Lawrence. Sirens went off about 5:45 and it was still near Overbrook (20+ miles away). Had time to drink a beer and follow it on weather sites and TV, figuring it would die out. Last report on TV before the power went out was that it was between Lone Star and Clinton Lake, gaining strength headed NE, which to me meant it was headed right to S. Lawrence. (Luckily it was actually a tad south of Lone Star Lake which was farther south than they thought on TV.) I suggested to my wife that we just get in the car and drive NW out of the way, but she thought we should stay put. OK.
Anyway, I grabbed my laptop, computer backup drive, the dog, and the fire box with birth certificates and passports etc. and headed to the basement. We have a pretty safe spot in the SW corner under a very solid work bench.
- Don’t store a bunch of shit under the work bench.
- Get a battery back up for the sump pump in case the power goes out for 6 hours again with 3 inches of rain (luckily it rained so f-ing hard so fast, it all just ran off)
- Don’t expect cell phones to work with a tornado nearby (totally useless for a good half hour window when we really could have used info)
- Get something to recharge cell phones when you’ve wasted battery life trying to track a tornado
- If you have enough warning, I don’t know why you wouldn’t just get in your car and drive out of the way.
Hats off to the warning system though. We had a good 25 minutes notice before it rolled by. Sad to see Pendleton farm (pumpkin farm/farmer’s market mainstay and farm to table grower between Lawrence and Eudora) get nailed and a bunch of homes just south of the city limits, but i don’t think anyone near Lawrence was seriously injured.
