    Tonight's Storm

    I'm sitting in my house in Johnston right now waiting for it to start storming. It sounds like we're going to get hit hard pretty soon.

    Just got home from casually following the southern edge of the storm out here in Urbandale. I think I just saw the funnel cloud that passed over Highway 141 near Grimes.

    We didn't see anything. But the rain was rather heavy and could have shielded it.

    Didn't see it touch down, while it was in my view it was staying at about a 45 degree angle hanging down from the clouds.

    Some sirens just kicked on but it doesn't sound like the Urbandale sirens are on. Sounds like I'm hearing the ones in Johnston.

    It seems to have passed us in Johnston. It got very dark and rained very hard for several minutes. Looks like Ankeny is getting hammered now. I'm trying to watch KCCI for weather, but it seems like they really want to show the Tonys.

    I went downstairs for a few minutes, came back upstairs and saw someone singing Nothin' but a Good Time.

    I wish they would change the siren tone. Everytime I hear I feel like we are supposed to prepare for an air raid.

    KCCI's coverage is laughable right now.

    Watching ABC5 so I know when they start showing the NBA game again. You can just hear the disappointment in their voices as the report that the storm is dying out.
