How the hell are you? Safe and sound I hope. This storm system sounded intense. Check in & let us know!

All OK here - went without power for about 24 hours. Worst part about that was that we couldn't get cell reception for the first 12 hours as well - must have knocked out a cell tower.

Lots of people without power around the Des Moines area. We were driving back from the North Shore of Lake Superior to Des Moines on Monday, well after the storm. There were at least 10 semis blown over in a 20 mile stretch north of Des Moines. Every corn field in that area was decimated.

 

I had a couple of big limbs downed, but a friend with a chainsaw and I made very quick work of it. Lucky!

Put me in the lucky camp, too - no damage and very little power loss. Many of friends in my village are still with out power and lost trees. It was crazy for about 15 minutes - then sunny within a hour or so.
