Well, we finally learned the extent of the damage to the storage unit back in Manhattan. It turned out that out of the entire storage park, only about 4 units were left fully intact, and one of those happened to be Heather's. So we will be sending a key to our friend Matt, and he will go take pictures of the things in the unit. Once we decide what we want to keep, he will ship the stuff to us, and give the rest to the Salvation Army.

Last night, Wednesday 11, a tornado hit the SW side of Manhattan causing lots of damage to homes and property in the area. The tornado then jumped around while continuing its path NE through the city, hitting the campus of Kansas State University on the way. Some photos of the damage can be seen here. Heathers storage unit might have been hit, for it was right near a section of town that was hit hardest, but we will not know until later today or tomorrow as to the actual state. If it was, I am not really sure what we can do about it, seeing that we are 1800 miles away from there. I don't think there is much to be done, actually. Except to write it off as gone and continue on as we were. On the bright side, if it was damaged, that is at least one more bill that we won't have to pay for anymore.
