Tumult

The last couple of weeks – well, month plus – have been full of stress and challenges on a personal front that I decided that I didn’t want to blog about. As part of it, I felt obliged to go back to San Diego and ended up staying there far longer than I wanted to.

I took care of things there as best I could and left when I had to. I drove the 2700 kilometers (1700 miles) from San Diego to Kansas City in 34 hours.

On the recommendation of a friend, I tried taking a shortcut between Tucumcari, New Mexico and Wichita, Kansas. I left the interstate and took Highway 54, a mostly two lane highway that has a speed limit of 65 mph most of the time, but slows down briefly as you pass through little towns in New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.

One of the little towns was Greensburg, Kansas – where an F5 tornado had alighted just four days before.

All I can say is: Holy shit.
