      I am kind of amazed the situation in Iowa isn't getting more media coverage.  I mean, I admit that I've been avoiding the "news" lately because it is all about politics but still.. I've barely even seen a mention of the hurricane(?) at the national level.  And certainly nowhere near the coverage of say, Biden and Kamala.  I didn't even hear about it from the "news" initially.  I had to hear about it from my brother where it is sort of local news.  He's just over the border about 100mi away in Janesville, WI and said Cedar Rapids was pretty much flattened.  Then I went looking for more information online on my own.  Sounded like a low-level hurricane, or one of our "Santa Ana" winds out here.  Hope it didn't rough you up too much.

      Dunno why I didn't see this before, @efaardvark - sorry I didn't say something sooner.  The winds were about the same as a Category 3-4 hurricane.  Here at the house, my gear measured 104 mph.  We lost a lot of trees and limbs, two neighbors near me had large trees fall on their houses, we're talking healthy 70-80-90 year old trees too.  My phone lines are still out.

      Not a problem, just glad to hear you're alive.  :)
