Wreckage

This is all two blocks from Earth Goat headquarters, on TLB and Brando's street.

I have never felt so lucky to have been so oblivious. Trees are sheared a block from my home, but not at my home. How?

Thanks for the pictures. This is terrible.

VERY glad to hear everyone is okay.

How does the Dey House look? My old digs above John's?

No visible damage to John's. Dunno about Dey House... anyone?

I'm sure Dey House is fine. The tornado cut a very clear path northeastward from the Clinton/Burlington intersection. The main downtown and the campus look fine, from what I've seen.

TLB and Brando's block is something to see. Egad.

Horrible and eerie. Glad everyone's fine. Last year I thought I heard someone say IC hadn't been hit by a tornado in like 30 years. Is that true? Is this more Katrina global warming craziness?

I heard today that this was the first tornado ever to hit Iowa City itself. I blame George W. Bush.

Growing up in Indiana lends itself to lots of tornado lore (and using tornado as a verb -- "Looks like it may tornado tonight.")-- they always told us tornados never strike in river valleys. Clearly a lie. I'm glad to hear everyone is okay. I have alerted the Quakers, and they are holding you all in the light, whether or not you think that's crazy. Be safe.
