Kansas. Today's high 69 degrees. Tomorrow night's low 9. (For my Celsius knowledgeable friends that's a high of 20.55 and a low of negative 12.77.) It'll drop down below freezing in a couple of hours today.
Wind is screaming out of the south right now, and pushing those low hanging clouds north. My friend and I were walking around downtown we looked up at the capitol building. Both of us stopped, stared at the copper plated dome, and then turned to each other. "Did you just see that?"
"Yeah! Did you?!"
The clouds, racing behind the building had made it look like they were hanging still in the sky and the building was swaying dramatically in the 32 mph winds with 44 mph gusts (they are running at 30, I just checked nws.noaa.gov*).
I've never seen anything like that before. I had to double check that my feet were on the ground. I had a touch of dizziness.
Sometime this afternoon/evening, those winds will be moving at the same speed, but from the north. Good news is that there are no tornadoes in the forecast. Doesn't mean it won't happen though.
And now for something completely different. For Christmas, my dad gifted me with a kick-ass SOG knife. The securely wrapped up knife/saw combo came with a one inch folding blade in order to be able to open the actual knife's packaging. So, I got a knife to be able to cut the packaging tape leading to another knife. I've never seen that before either.

UPDATE: Record high today of 71 degrees.
