More Storms

Its almost 10 PM and the rain storms are roaring thru here again. The line of stuff built in the last three hours and has moved to the North of our Southern KC location.

They blew the sirens for about ten minutes an hour ago, but checking the radar shows that it will only be a rain event this far South.

With that said, anything can build out of the unstable air that is from Oklahoma to Canada. It goes over the Cedar Rapids area of Iowa, which is in big trouble already. The Iowa river and the Cedar river are both causing major trouble for Eastern Iowa.

In the Des Moines area, the Saylorville Lake reservoir is about to go over the spillway. This is catastrophic for the downtown area. The last time this happened was in 1993, and the town was without water for weeks.

They had flood water everywhere in the main business district, but no water to drink. Or flush. It was bad. I lived there at the time and we left on weekends for Lake Ozark, in order to bathe and wash our clothes.

Many of my blog readers are from Iowa and do have vivid memories of this time. So lets hope history does not repeat this event. Or at least not in such severity.

I hung around the house all day and did bill paying and income tax estimate work. Boring stuff, but necessary all the same. It was a welcome relief from the car dealer work.

Tonight I have been reading blogs from the RV Dreams Rally in Branson, Mo. and generally just hanging out.

It would have been fun to go, but Loyce does not enjoy group activities like that, so it will never happen with her along.
