My Monday this week was a long 12 hour round trip thru the rural countryside of NW Kansas. The weatherman kept warning his call of impending doom as he repeated his message of "do not travel" or "travel at risk of losing your life" and so forth. So, in spite of his advice and the depressing dark clouds that were my constant companion I kept moving further and further away from my home and for the most part I stayed out of harm's way until dark when I finally hit slick roads. The last 50-60 miles were snow packed slushy roads with several vehicles in the ditches and by then I was very tired. But made it home safely and got all my work done. I also managed to take quite a few photos during the day and will share some with you here including this old stone country schoolhouse that has been converted to farm storage.
