    weird weather, it keeps getting warmer-severe weather coming

    It is now 60 on my outdoor thermometer, the daytime high hit 58 in south central Iowa, it has gone up all night. The snow and ice are about all gone, and now there are severe thunderstorms in Kansas coming our way. Three days ago it was below zero.

    Still 72 down here right now at the Lake of The Ozarks. Wind is picking up and heavy storms are set to hit by 6am. Crazy..

    What part of the lake are you on? I am down there quite often and stay on a cove at the 10 MM, near Frankie and Louie's. Hopefully you were boating on the water today if it is that warm.

    The weather is setting itself up for something nasty, hopefully no tornadoes.

    re: weird weather, it keeps getting warmer-severe weather coming

    I was just outside a little bit ago in central Iowa and it was so warm, I almost started sweating... I love it! Typical Iowa weather I suppose.

    It's raining now and 30 degrees. Could be a tricky weather day.

    re: weird weather, it keeps getting warmer-severe weather coming

    Our weather radio woke my wife and I this morning when it went off blaring a warning regarding an ice storm this afternoon. We have a love hate relationship with that radio. Seems to me that there are different levels of concern and needs for alarms, while an ice storm would not be one of them.

    I'm down here for the next 4 days just loafing and watching bowl games with my wife and little one. We're at 2mm at the Falls. I'd have loved to gotten out yesterday but we might need to have the boat re-winterized by tomorrow. Weather man just said 20's by Sunday morning. Tornado in Benton County right now.

    By the way, I love Franki and Louie's. Some of the best pizza on the lake and good gas prices.

    we love ours in the spring, summer and fall but it gets unplugged around November and stays unplugged until April. I dont need to know about an ice warning at 2am....winter weather is a bit more predictable and you have plenty of advanced warning so no need for a radio in the winter

    Good restaurant, though I am not sure the neighbors like all the boat traffic or music at the end of the cove, the old camping grounds were probably enough for them.

    After my post last night, dark cloud blew through, temp dropped 25 degrees in 15 minutes, thunder and lightning 1/2 later, ice on everything this morning.

    31 Mile Marker. If you know Bars as land marks I'm in the same cove as "The Fish N' Company" Also close to Captains Galley and about 6 miles from Captain Ron's. Been to Frankie and Louies many times though. Great place. A lot like Captain Ron's but smaller.

    Re: weird weather, it keeps getting warmer-severe weather coming

    We stayed close to that mile marker Labor day weekend, not to far from the "4 corners" part of the lake. The cove I was one was small almost canal width. We were right across the main channel from the Helen "Helen is Sellin' " house.
