Frog Strangler...Iowa Style

About 3 this morning, the skies over Iowa opened up with a CRACK!!!! and off and on until about 6:30, there was more thunder and lightening than I ever remember. Once or twice, the thunder was so loud right over our heads that it caused me to actually exclaim!! I won't say here what I said..... those of you who know me well can probably guess. Dave was out of bed several times watching the lightening and checking the weather page on the computer. The attached picture is from the end of the storm. The good news is, the dogs have learned what rain on the roof sounds like. They HATE to go out in the rain. They can wait hours if it's raining. When things finally settled down, we all got about an hour of sleep before it was dog time. Dave had to pull up his pant legs and carry one dog at a time and wade to a more or less dry spot. Our door mat was beginning to float away. One of the campground guys brought us a couple of wooden pallets to use as a front porch until the water subsided. It's mostly gone in our space now. The sun is trying to come out. It's about 85 and really really really humid out there.

You visited another of the great lakes or rather another of the great lakes visited you. Do you have a flood damage clause in your motorhome insurance? Keep your powder dry.
