Not how I wanted to fully wake up this morning. And looking at radar, the heavy stuff will be here right when I'm wanting to head to work.
Yeah don't do that! Jason S on KCCI said to blame it on him if you're late!

I feel like Waukee has a forcefield around it.

The worst of the storms always seem to split around us.
Well thanks for jinxing us.

We are right off of 80 across from Rubes, so I'm always a little nervous since we're the "leading edge", but we've been lucky so far.

Hell, even if I do get back to sleep, I'll just get woken up again soon if the power comes back on and everything beeps.

Didn't seem like it got too wild in north Ames, edge of the bad stuff must have been right over the city.

Why does the weather app that comes on all IPhones always wildly differ from apps like 13 Warn Me? Like all night it kept saying only a 35% chance of rain for a couple hours this morning while the 13 app predicted big storms. Same with the last round. Is the IPhone weather app using a potato for its radar?

Ours definitely did around 5:10. Dogs were not impressed.

Hopefully you heard the sirens. Those are getting a workout this week.

Heard those but only after my mom got an alert on same phone that I have and woke me up.

If she hadn't woken up I could have even slept through sirens.

Can someone smarter than me explain how this works. The storms today were moving NE, but based on the direction of the trees blowing halfway over the wind was blowing to the SE. Is this just my eyes messing with me or is that a thing?
