We made it to Topeka with the sun blaring and buckled down for four eight minute quarters of little league football. After the hour warmup the game was underway. I had taken off my sweatshirt because the sun was in full force. Thirty minutes later the clouds covered the sun and the wind started blowing a chilly breeze. I needed the sweatshirt and I really needed jeans but I was tough....tough enough to withstand 4 overtimes (see future blog). We were going to be extremely late to the KSU game. We headed back to Manhattan and listened to the radio as severe thunderstorm warnings and the skies started to darken.
Just as we were walking through the parking lot to the game, we heard the announcer say that there would be a 30 minute delay of game due to the lightning. We strolled back to the car to wait it out.
Below you will see some pics that some of my friends photos as they witnessed the game as the storm came through. We were still in the car but they had quite a show!
Check out the video that someone posted as the storm moved in:
