Well I've been quiet, I dodged a bullet on the home front the iowa hurricane "Derecho" snuck up on the state destroyed most in its path at the quarry i was working in on the north side of cedar rapids we were right in between the 2 highest recorded wind gust of 106 and 112 mph. The storm and wind sustained those speeds for almost 45 minutes, the area is still restoring power with holes of getting it back tonight. This happened last week on Monday around 12:30 pm. For the state a estimated 10 million acres of corn was flattened for a loss. If you follow me on fb I have video riding it out in my loader. At home I was on the edge we saw 50-60 mph and no damage. We were lucky, very lucky
