Re: Iowa storms

Kitty:  Glad to hear the storms held off long enough for your sale.   What great luck!

Subject: Re: [CHAT] Iowa storms

We had an afternoon deluge, 1.5 inches in about an hour, on Friday;
then<br>again that night. Saturday was clear until about 3:40. Got dark,
some<br>wind, but apparently rained everywhere except where I was - at
the MG plant<br>sale at the extn office. Rained again last night.
Somewhat cool &amp; overcast<br>today, Sunday, but now it's storming to
beat the band, high winds, the whole<br>nine yards.<br><br>All in all,
I'm happy enough. We had enough time Friday to set up the sale<br>and
Sat it was clear and lots of customers for the plant sale.I think
we<br>beat the record for $ taken in for May. With so many people
putting in so<br>much effort, I would hate to see it rained out. We
don't have a place big<br>enough to hold it
indoors.<br><br>Kitty<br><br>----- Original Message ----- <br>From:

storms<br><br><br>&gt; Melody, we are soggy but fine!

. Talked with my daughter this morning, they<br>&gt; only lost one
window, granddaughters car was damaged some by the hail.<br>They<br>&gt;
live about 2 miles N of Madrid on Hwy 17 (SW of Ames) on an acreage.
Hwy<br>17 was<br>&gt; closed btwn them &amp; Madrid and was also closed
S of Madrid. The town of<br>Madrid<br>&gt; was flooded badly. They got 5
1/2&quot; last evening. Red Cross was setup in<br>&gt; town this
morning. We had about 3&quot;. It has been sprinkling off and
on<br>this<br>&gt; morning.<br>&gt; Amazing with all the storms the past
two nights noone was seriously<br>hurt.<br>&gt; Our warning systems have
become very sophisticated. The tv stations stay<br>&gt; ontop of it. No
usual shows only weathermen giving directions and<br>warnings.<br>&gt;
One was even dressed in shorts last night as I am sure he was at
the<br>Allianz<br>&gt; golf tournaments. Do you get DM stations?<br>&gt;
I am sure the pro golfers think all we have is bad weather. !

 Since<br>&gt; Allianz has been here it has always been nasty storms.  
The first yr they<br>were run<br>&gt; off the greens and had much
damage. Looks like we will not dry out much<br>this<br>&gt;
week.<br>&gt; Hope all is well with Mardi.<br>&gt; Ceres<br>&gt;<br>&gt;
