I miss a lot of things about Iowa, but the severe weather isn't one of them:
I remember Parkersburg as a beautiful little small town a few miles away from where I lived in Iowa. I'm glad everyone I know in Cedar Falls seems to be OK. I was a bit worried about two of my grad students who went back to visit Iowa over the last weekend, but both of them made it back to Athens...
Edit: I realized just now that along with Clermont Harbor, this makes TWO towns I have connections with that have been completely destroyed by natural disasters.
