Default Winter in Iowa

Yeah, we were planning on doing some skiing this afternoon, but the
thunderstorms keep blowing through and melting all the snow...


At least you folks have had electricity for the past three days.
Here in the Columbus Ohio vicinity, the first wave of storms rolled
through at 3:50 pm Monday and took out the first batch of power
customers. The second round came through at 4:15 am Tuesday morning and
knocked the rest of us out (100,000+). As of this evening there were
still 11,000 without power.

Wow!
I'll bet there are a lot of grills cooking in your neighborhood. (Gotta
save that meat before it spoils...)


The last day, I counted eight generators running as I walked the dog
around the block (half-mile). The city is running special trash pickups
Friday and Saturday for rotted food.
