Life in Iowa
As I mentioned in my last post, there were 30+ tornadoes that touched down near Sioux City last Wednesday night. Thankfully my family and friends are all okay as far as I can tell. Sadly there were four casualties, all Boy Scouts, and there are still people in the hospital.
The flooding that’s in the news hasn’t hit us yet. We’re on the West Coast of Iowa. Sioux City straddles the borders between Iowa, Nebraska and South Dakota. Most of the heavy flooding is in Eastern and Central Iowa. It’s sure causing a lot of damage… I shudder to think what this is going to do to the price of corn and soy in the fall.
Stolen from Steakbellie
I just got back from a quick trip to Steakbellie’s blog. He has a link to a very powerful comic site. He said he got to page 2 before he choked up and had to quit. I made it to page three, barely. I’m going to have to finish it when I get home so I can cry in peace whilst reading it…
Go HERE. Read slowly. Think of the people, the emotion.
