In 1936, the temperature in Goodland Kansas climbed to 110 
degrees, a record for the date. It was the first of three 
consecutive days that the temperature would climb to 110 
degrees, a feat never reached before or since at that location. 

In 1996, a severe thunderstorm in Logan County Kansas produced 
golf ball sized hail and strong north winds. It was reported that 
nearly every north facing window in Monument was broken, as well 
as damage to cars and crops. About 260 panes of glass at the 
Monument School were broken.
