    Storms

    Wow, that was impressive winds coming through in the DSM area. I looked outside for a sec, neighbor lost a tree, and my garbage cans are probably blocks from here.

    I just wish that this weather would keep up for a few hours, but it looks like it'll only last about a half hour. I love severe storms.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: Storms

    some pretty good size branches down here in my neighborhood in Beaverdale. One from my tree fell out into the street, still hanging out a foot or 2 after I pulled it back as far as I could. Doubt the city will be nice enough to come by and haul it off for me...

    Re: Storms

    The heaviest just rolled through Newton. Some small pea sized hail, heavy rain, and winds came through. Nothing too bad.

    Just got done putting a neighbors fence back up. The other side of me lost 1/2 their shingles.
