Wild Ride

On the way home from visiting relatives this weekend we ran right into the middle of a really fierce storm. We could see it building and coming across Iowa but we kept driving and hoping that we would miss it. After listening to the radio for miles and miles and since there was no place to hide but in the corn fields we pulled off to have some ice cream and hopefully it would blow over and we could be on our way.

After 20 minutes of ice cream we got back on the road. Thank goodness we stopped! There were trees and power lines down all over the place. We saw one huge tree on top of someones very nice RV. The picture is dark and fuzzy cause Bubby had been playing with my camera and the settings were all messed up (that and I need a new camera!). But you get the idea.

Some local towns were still without power on Tuesday. After the storms the sky cleared pretty fast and we had a wonderful rainbow (Bubby had one on his hand too!)

Man I hate storms!!
