Kansas is a great place to live...if you like wind and thunderstorms. Yesterday, ahead of a cold front, we received a pounding from 30-40 MPH winds. It REALLY hit our place:

Limbs were down.

Chairs moved and knocked over (the green chairs were moved at least a foot!).

More chairs knocked over.
Obviously this is some strong wind!! However, we had one amazing survivor:

That's right. This little green Hot Wheels car, worth about $1, didn't even move with the wind. Our old owners left it, we found it and now it is our permanent outside car. It may be small but it's tough.

Aha. There's the reason it's so strong - it's British!!
