    Crazy Iowa weather

    As of 11:58, we've got a winter storm warning, winter weather advisory, severe thunderstorm warning, and dense fog advisory spread out around our state.
    No Flood warnings or tornado warnings...yet.

    Yes, he does make a lot of weather. But think about all of the weather that he brings in for the state of Iowa. And besides, most of his weather is booster weather.

    Re: Crazy Iowa weather

    As long as its not the "roll in at 10:30-11 pm" storms that seemed to come every Sunday last summer, I can take it too. Not quite the fanatic as I was before watching Pburg (where I went to school) get leveled last year, but still intrigued by it.

    Thunder too. Glad this isn't snow.

    Re: Crazy Iowa weather

    We got enough here it looked like snow.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Nothing against you, but just an observation, you're loosely quoting bible topics while you sig talks about one of the biggest potheads this planet has seen and getting laid. Kinda Ironic.

    Re: Crazy Iowa weather

    Driving around in W. Des Moines, I had to pull in underneath the overhang at Kum & Go, it was hailing so hard. Normally I would just plow ahead, but having a 8-week old in the backseat changes your mindset a bit. It looks like someone threw a bucket of cocaine in the back of my truck.

    Because if ever there was a credible historical and scientific resource to quote, it's the christian bible...
