Went to Old Settlers' Day at Alta Vista

I was looking forward to getting out of the house today, so we went to Alta Vista to the Old Settlers' Day Festivities. I had heard that there would be all kinds of fun and games going on, arts & crafts and a motorcycle show!

We got there and headed to the bikes. There were lots of really cool motorcycles. I asked if I could go for a ride, but TBG put the kibosh on that. I got to meet some really nice people and one guy (Dennis) was really interested in what I'm all about. Maybe he will decide to become a volunteer puppy raiser (*wink, wink*).

Here's a pic of me with one of the cool bikes. Sure hope they all made it to a safe place before the storm hit.

We then headed over to where the arts & crafts and kids games were, but there was a storm coming in and folks were taking everything down and heading for cover. I said I wasn't ready to leave quite yet so we headed on over and watched some guys playing horseshoes...they were gooooood!

Deb did some work on my commands.

and then the rain started and lightning was popping all around so we headed back to the car. On the way home I had TBG stop and take a pic of the coming storm.

We just pulled into the garage when it all cut loose. Very strong winds, hail and rain where you couldn't see 5 feet in front of you. Just to be safe, I convinced Deb to head for the basement and we stayed there for a few minutes. Came back upstairs and here's what it looked like after the "bad" stuff had passed.

Besides a huge limb down off of one of the trees, no other damage from the storm. Kansas sure does have strange weather!
