Double Take

Forget The Wizard of Oz, if you live in Kansas, the movie to watch and really get into is the post-apocalyptic thriller The Day After. It takes place in Kansas the day after nuclear war and just makes you feel great about living in the Sunflower State. I saw the movie a few times before moving to Kansas and now I'm here I love it all the more.

This all leads me to yesterday. I got out of my car to walk into Wal-mart and as I do I look up and do a double take like in the old Warner Bros. cartoons. From where I was standing it looked like Kansas City just went up in smoke:

You can watch the whole The Day After movie right here right now:

Wow! Kinda like the scene where the Jason Robards character is driving to KC and sees the cloud. What happened there?

We just had had some t-storms and it was just the sun hitting some tall clouds...
