As an Iowan, I'm deeply offended by the inclusion of these images on your blog.I kid, of course, but I have spent the past week staring at images of towns where I lived for 3 months and 4 years (Iowa City and Waverly, respectively) under foot upon foot of water in places. I only vaguely remember the infamous Flood of '93 -- which I'm learning is only infamous to Iowans -- but the '93 wasn't compounded with a record-setting year for tornado-related deaths like '08.I've been saying it for going on years now, but something big is going down. Mother Nature's pissed at the world.
When I saw the cover of nytimes.com I immediately thought about this post and you. I hope your people are ok and that they haven't fallen prey to shark attack in the muddle of Iowa.
