Floods of 2008

Postby ironman » Thu Jun 12, 2008 10:04 am

I'm surprised a thread hasn't been started about this yet. The flooding in Iowa is absolutely insane. It's making 1993 look like nothing!

The Cedar Rapids Gazette has had pretty good coverage and photos of what's happening in Eastern Iowa.

It's not the major story in the news cycle so we don't hear much about it. If this wasn't an election year, we'd probably be hearing much more.

Don't worry, it's just a glitch in the matrix. ;-D

So what is the weirdest deja vu you're had? :-?

Middle of a point in tennis. I knew exactly where the guy was going to hit his next shot, and I knew that I would hit it into the net. So, I compensated by turning my racket under with the idea that I'd be able to get under the ball and make sure it didn't hit the net. However, his shot skipped and stayed low, which is a terrible location for the grip I had switched to. As a result, wasn't able to reach out and get under the ball.

I hit it into the net.

Holy crap, now I'm completely freaked out. I had a dream the other night about you playing tennis and that exact scenario played out. Were you naked then too like in the dream?

Oh no, our GT is turning into the kind of lovefest you see on the Lightside.

As for the flooding, yes, it's incredible. It was only last night I sat down and had seen the news on the Iowa flooding. I think they were reporting a severe line of thunderstorms making its way through the night, stretching from Minnesota as far down south as Kansas, I think, which could of course turn into tornadoes. Hope you folks in that neck of the woods are fine. ;-D
