Power out at least half hour now in Granger. Neighbors fence and play set blown down
Just had a nasty storm go through West Ames. Lost a big branch of our maple and a large section of a neighbor's tree just fell onto our in-ground pool. Hoping for no damage to the cover.
Got dark and heard the siren about an hour ago. Lots of rumbling. Sounded like a train in the distance for most of the last hour. Very scary. Seems to be calming down now.
We just bought a trampoline and I contemplated putting it up yesterday but didn’t because I wanted to get some ground anchors in first.Guess we need better anchors for our trampoline, all 4 straps failed.. Luckily it just tumbled into the corn field behind our house & didn't hit any houses.
