Just checking in with you IA to see if you are ok with all of the flooding and tornadoes in your area.

Doing very well, thank you! I'm actually going to Des Moines tomorrow morning to help one of my best friends. His house is very close to the flood stage and I'm going to help sandbag. I'm giving up tickets to tomorrow night's College World Series game between LSU and North Carolina. :cry:

From the tornadoes that went by here we only lost one tree, a broken window, and some dings and nicks on the siding. We got lucky compared to some!

Good to hear that. Hope your friend's house will be spared. Is that the Des Moines River in his back yard? My mother-in-law has family in Cedar Rapids. I guess that's further east. I should have called her already.

My wifes cousin plays for the Quad City Riverbats. I saw a photo of the city and must assume the ball park is under water since it sits right next to the river. All our best to you folks in that region of the country. I went through a flood once and it was no fun.

It's crazy how mother earth can be so cruel...I might turn on my sprinklers tonight! Two hours east of my house they are 10 feet deep!

Glad you're ok IA. Isn't your wedding date fast approaching. There will be a storm front for you that you can't avoid and is sure to cause some real damage.

Best wishes

Thanks Sub! The countdown is at 25 days right now and evaporating extremely fast! At this pace it will be here in two days. I can feel the warm sandy beaches of Jamaica now...
