    ***Official 2024 Weather Thread***

    On this date in 1976, the tornado Dr. Fujita called the most violent tornado he had seen hit Jordan, Iowa. At one point two tornado's spun next to each other. One having the classic cyclonic spin.....the other an anti-cyclonic spin. In today's terms...........INSANE, EPIC, HISTORIC. It was the...

    So a bit of a pattern shift in 3 decades and change? Meh, the next 34 years it could change right back. Need to go back before 1986, because the records are there to show where it was from 1952 to 1986.

    Otz to UConn (speculation)

    Unless the universities next hire as AD is made with and only with TJ's blessing. Because you just don't know how personalities will mesh.

    Jumping to tomorrow..........on June 7th, 1984 about 21 tornado's hit the state of Iowa (probably more with today's tech) the worst being one that was on the ground for almost 3 hours and covered nearly 127 miles from northern Missouri to near Sigourney. It killed 2 and injured 63. A few hours...

    And because it's the "official" reporting station......the farmers just outside the city looking at ponds in their fields will have to hear on WHO radio how once again central Iowa is dryer than normal.

    On this date in 1980 storms dropped softball size hail with 80 mph winds just south of DSM in the morning. In the afternoon another storm dropped a small tornado near Drake University and it produced minor damage until it lifted near the 2nd Avenue bridge.

    Time for a Real Discussion About Caitlin Clark

    So that is what you got from my post......a "conspiracy"? And where did I say "entire WNBA"? Please....the girl who checked CC is a trouble maker plain and simple. That not a conspiracy. And neither is the fact Angel still has her panties in a wad over all the attention CC is getting. Much like...

    Time for a Real Discussion About Caitlin Clark

    Lipsey and Gilbert have the "being assaulted" down to a science. And usually without even being touched. So let's not be to critical of CC. Also, trash talking is a part of sports. If that's all it takes to start a scrap.......you would see scrapping going on before, during and after every play...

    Did Iowa become a state in 1985? No.......in the last 38 years of "RECORD KEEPING" this is probably the most since 1986. And even that can be questioned because of the advancement of technology and the glorifying of storm chasing along with the paranoia that comes with watching a bunch of...

    Rural water rate increase?

    If true, then the cost of buying water vs. the culligan man is no longer easily offset and I would be shopping for a new softener.

    Lawn Mower - Reviews

    Used about $300 worth of "11% off" money about 8 years ago. Couldn't tell you the name of it even now. I put Mobil 1 in before it's first mow and haven't done anything but sharpen the blade since. It still starts first pull after sitting winters.

    Don't like how it looks!!! Sure it's a completely different story from ground level. Especially if you were in the path. But be thankful it was a narrow path. Because had this been F5 El Reno type......Greenfield would have been wiped off the map.

    Not much rain in Urbandale this storm compared to this morning, but some down draft winds were bending the neighbors trees while at the same time to the west you could see clear skies.

    Today seems similar to May 27, 1995. Might have more than 9 tornado's today however. Hopefully 13 don't die. Don't need that.

    With full being normal, when you have levels of drought......"almost" full is considered a level of empty.

    Since 1980 (per records) June is the worst month in Iowa with May being a close second. No other month really is close after that.
