Re: Iowa storms

We had an afternoon deluge, 1.5 inches in about an hour, on Friday; then
again that night.  Saturday was clear until about 3:40.  Got dark, some
wind, but apparently rained everywhere except where I was - at the MG plant
sale at the extn office.  Rained again last night. Somewhat cool & overcast
today, Sunday, but now it's storming to beat the band, high winds, the whole
nine yards.

All in all, I'm happy enough.  We had enough time Friday to set up the sale
and Sat it was clear and lots of customers for the plant sale.I think we
beat the record for $ taken in for May.  With so many people putting in so
much effort, I would hate to see it rained out.  We don't have a place big
enough to hold it indoors.
