Storms are popping up around Sioux Falls area.
It was interesting waking up to Hail this morning, damn shame it didn't do anything to my car...
I'm sitting in an milford campsite bathroom right now listening to the sirens and a guy dropping a deuce. Please god don't take me now like this.
Maybe the funniest and best post on CF ever!!!!
This place is a clown car of people, dogs, and stench. The funnel was spotted over Arnolds park I think. Pretty dang close.
That would be close. Hope nothing happened there; I love me some Cajun Chicken Linguine from Minerva's:yes:
Seems to have passed us. I cant believe all of the huskers in here. I'm standing at the threshold of Hell.
Just starting to get it now. Unconfirmed report of brief tornado touchdown near Thompson. Still have power, but supposedly Thompson, Leland, and parts of Forest City without power.
My shoulder will be available for you to cry on.
Last 7 day total not including tonight: Precipitation Analysis Pages
My hometown and home golf course are f'ed. My dad has been bailing, pumping and drying our basement all week, and with tonight's rain there is no end in sight. Insane to me, especially since the closest river is 6 miles out of town.
I really don't think it's gonna miss us now.
This looks ugly.... again
River levels and projections starting to get interesting.
Des Moines River
Algona - projected crest 18.3ft
1993 - 18.83ft; 2008 - 18.90ft
Humboldt - projected crest 14.4ft
1993 - 15.22ft; 2008 - 10.87ft
Fort Dodge - projected crest 17.4 ft
1993 - 16.47ft; 2008 - 16.39ft
Stratford - projected crest 26.4 ft
1993 - 25.68ft; 2008 - 27.32ft
Including tonight, over the past 2 weeks we've had 15 inches in my area. Just have been inundated in the Humboldt, Wright, northern Webster County area. Thankfully tonight's storm lost some of the oomph it had in the Cherokee area.
Been sitting in my basement since 4:30, waiting to see if water comes in again. I spent some time yesterday sloping the egress window well away from the house by digging it out. So far, so good because it was raining like hell, but didn't make it in.
I'm considering digging the outside 1' out about 12" deep and filling that with sand to help it soak in faster just to be sure. Not sure if that will really help, but right now it is clay, and water stands in there for quite a while.
Does anyone know how the rivers are looking in Ames at all?
Stuart Smith Park will get wet. South 4th should stay dry.
South 16th towards Dayton, and the Hunziker Sports Complex will get wet.
Rained like heck in Clive last night. Friggin lake in my backyard.
I see Saylorville is going over the emergency spillway later this week. That should throw a wrench in the new road construction they are doing that will cross the gorge. Since there is no precip forecast for this week that should allow the raccoon and major creeks like Beaver creek to go down before the emergency spillway deluge hits Des Moines.
Does anyone know why the Corps of Engineers kept the lake pool 20 feet over normal in late May and early June when they could have lowered it significantly? They had the outflow down to about 5,000 cfs and were only dropping the lake level by about a half a foot a day when we had some dry days a few weeks ago. I think an extra 10 feet of storage could have been used going into this week.
