Iowa is Intrepid

With my beloved home state currently in a state of unbelievable crisis from torrential rain and rising flood waters and tornadoes and who-knows-what-next I don't want to add another tragic thought to the understandable litany of those, nor do I want to trivialize these terrible matters but I do want my fellow Iowans to know my prayers are with them. And I also want to say this....

Mother Nature picked the wrong state to f--- with. Iowa went through a 500 year flood 15 years ago and emerged victorious and, yes, it will do it again.

I'm so glad we had those '93 floods. All the precautions and improvements that were put in place as a result of those are saving our asses right now. Sure, Downtown is still being evacuated, but there's been absolutely no interruption in our water supply.
