You hear that around here sometimes, actually. "Ioway" is the state and "Iowegians" live there.

Default storm damage

Here are some photos of the tornado that hit outside Hazelton on May 25. It was from the same cell that hit Parkersburg and New Hartford. They said, I think, it was an F3 that hit the Hazelton area. And in for those of you that don't know, Hazelton is along Hwy 150 in North Eastern Iowa in Buchanan County.

Default Tornados

Since I am tech illiterate and cannot figure out how put put the pics in ANd text I'll give it to you here
mostly the 4th and 5th (I think) are supposed to be a farm house, 3 out buildings, a shed, a barn, corral and a bunch of old growth trees. There was nothing, no debris, not leaves. Heck the neighbors rounded up the horses and put up a temporary corral for them.

I am loving these wonderful pics of the countryside, weather shots and festivals of the towns. I can't wait to get up there and see all the green in person!!

Does anyone have any pics of southeast Iowa? Iowa City down through all of Jefferson County? I'd love to see them. And more winter pics. I know you all are tired of the snow but in central Texas we rarely see snow. I only remember seeing snow here two or three times in the last 15 years. I am originally from the Chicago area so I really miss the four distinct seasons. I will live vicariously through y'all's pics!!
