    ***5/21 Weather****

    Not sure if I got the * right to make it official but Iowa is in for a long night of severe weather. Spencer area just got baseball size hail, there are numerous other severe storms in western Iowa If storms aren't severe they will still be strong and dangerous.

    You need to add one more * to the left hand side, or take one away from the right hand side. The off balance is really bugging me...

    Stuff like this doesn't bother me until someone else points it out. Thanks a lot.

    I believe official threads typically have three asterisks on each side, so the latter option is better.

    Wow I was not paying attention when I made this. Sorry for the asterisk mistake.

    These storms are really starting to fizzle out.

    I honestly didn't really notice, until he asked if his *'s were official. I then counted and noticed the unbalanced nature. Then it started to bother me, as well.

    Use the regional one I linked above. My local one (in Texas) is popping the same message.

    Unbalanced *'s are really getting me screwed up


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Sounds like it was just a bit NE of there. I actually thought everything missed Spencer as well... but not by much!
