    Fanatics they are calling for Hail in the metro and Ames area. Might be a good idea if you are a student to park your car in a parking garage on campus. Could be better to pay 10 bucks or so to park than pay a insurance deductible.

    thats what I did but I have Anxiety. Enjoy the weather

    I doubt many students have cars where they need to worry about paying an insurance deductible for hail damage, and if they do, I'm sure mommy or daddy would just cover it.

    Gerdin parking ramp is free after 5:30. Heading there soon to work on a project, so at least will have my vehicle covered that way.

    I think the storms will lose most of their omph by the time they get to Ames, too far from best dynamics, Des Moines would be more likely to get a hit.

    Storms are getting worse as they move east I would Imagine these storms hitting Ames ankeny and Des moines By 630. Sorry I have no life and freak out due to weather. Ugly Very large Hail is predicted.

    First time in site history that a post quoting CyCrazy had crappier grammar than Crazy's original post.

    Unless it's big enough hail to break windows I don't care. Which is what I said last time, when there was hail big enough to break windows
