    Re: MidAmerican: 'Part Of Downtown Could Lose Power'

    For those of you who work downtown, are people in your offices giddy at the thought of getting out of work early or not having to come in at all because of the flood? I know I would be. Kind of like the feeling when a major snowstorm is coming.

    They told us yesterday to make sure we have our laptops at home. I'd rather not deal with it because it will just mean that we will have to work late nights and worry about DR plans.

    To be completely honest, my wife isn't disappointed. She's still working, but doing it from home and/or in her company's Urbandale location - which is much closer for us. She has been working out of a small, very "crappy" downtown office...which has sucked for a few reasons. The biggest being she was supposed to be in Urbandale, was told that when hired - but her department was moved downtown from WDSM instead of into the new Urbandale location.

    So this will allow us to save a ton of money on gas. She's hoping they just won't continue the lease downtown (if it floods) and she'll be able to work from home/Urbandale until the 2nd new building in Urbandale is built.

    Re: Downtown residents should be ready to evac. Also, 'Part Of Downtown Could Lose Po

    I'm not worried, some of the facilities guys here said that the flood waters never got close to the building here so it would take much more water than in 1993 to be a concern here. Only 2 things that could be problems are backed up drains or loss of power. I'm really not getting hopes up or getting concerned about anything really.

    Rivers in D.M. to rise higher, faster than expected | DesMoinesRegister.com | The Des Moines Register

    Why do these ******* change their predictions every hour? What do they know now that they didn't know earlier this afternoon? The rain prediction has been known for several days...

    I think you may want to study the meaning of the word "prediction".

    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Was just in downtown Cedar Rapids. It is crazy down there. No one really knows what is going to happen.
