QCI my comp won't load your pic, is it really big? I'm disappointed because I love Vander Veer, I have an aunt who used to live a few blocks from there. Do you have any pictures of the fountain that lights up at night?? I love that place.

I'll look through my archives sometime for images of the fountain.

I don't miss those brutal winter days but the others sure make me nostalgic for my home state. Lovely!

Nope, I believe all of my pics I posted so far were just in the Black Hawk Co. Area... Glad you like them though!!

This is my first post here! Thought I would share my pic of this tornado in Ames in 2005 (I think).

Wow, excellant photo. The years I lived in Iowa I was lucky enough to have never experienced a tornado.
