I was on a road trip yesterday to Des Moines to pick up a new(er) bicycle and ran smack-dab into one helluva storm. Fortunately, I came through unscathed, although I guess I can’t say the same for the people around the Ames/Des Moines area. Saw a lotta damage; downed trees, power poles, houses with trees on (and in) them, some missing bits of siding and parts of roofs, and at least ten semi-trucks tipped onto their sides in that one stretch of I-35 between Ames and Des Moines itself.
So how about all you people on the board here that live in or near that area? Check in and let us know you’re OK!!
