RE: Iowans- you ok?

Hi Ceres,

When we got outside, the sirens were going off the sky was quite black to
the NW and not bad to the SE.  Since we had to go SE, I decided to try.
Diane called her husband Ed, who is chief of police in Norwalk IA to see if
he had any info about the storm.  His department had put in a state of the
art monitoring setup last year, so he was able to tell us where funnel
clouds etc were within a few hundred yards.  It was a little windy, but we
weren't close to any real action.  I don't get to Norwalk as often as I'd
like, but the next time I head that way, I'll get in contact with you prior
to and hopefully we can get together.  I's really like to see your gardens,
and I know Diane and Ed would too.  Maybe we can work something out.  I'm
pretty much in the same boat as far as rain is concerned, although we are
supposed to get some late tonight that is scheduled to turn into blowing and
drifting snow around 7 tomorrow morning and continue for most of the day.
Just sounds dandy doesn't it?  Talk to you later, Rich

Rich, you must have scooted right out.   We were lingering to hear the Q & A
with Dan and then they announced we should all remain in the auditorium as
that was the designated storm protection area.   Football fans were directed
the Coliseum next door but some did come into our bldg just as Dan was
entertaining by reading from his book such things as you are a 'red neck
when .....'
and ridiculous garden poems.   He did explain to those who had wondered in
that we had just finished a garden event.   I looked for you but didn't know
where you were sitting.   Did you head back home immediately?   I believe
now say there were 10 twisters in the area.   2 young guys individually
the storm which has been shown on TV.   One filmed the storm hitting his own
home.   Not to smart a move, I would say.   The storm was within 7 miles in
couple of directions of my daughters home.   I had called her from the
auditorium but they were in Des Moines.   They did not have damage.
The storm was within a very short distance of the campus.   How fortunate it
did not hit there with thousands of people moving about in the stands and
tailgating in the parking lots.
     Rich, it was good to see you again.   I would love to be able to meet
when we had more time to talk.   Do you visit Diane frequently?
     I am not having computer problems.   I am just not getting all garden
chat messages.   I am on several quilting lists   on yahoo and get them
I am receiving them in digest form, however.   I got a new computer in Aug
still have AOL service which my son keeps telling me to chg but I don't want
to chg my address.   I have not heard from Chris regarding my mail.   Today
have a lot from gardenchat so maybe things are moving again.
     It is cold & windy today.   Very little rain came with the storms.   It
is so dry but I am sure Pam is drier than we are.
