Jim Compton was in the middle of this in a steel commercial building-he said the roof blew off-huge machinist tables and equipment blew everywhere woodframed interior walls basically exploded I saw a short video and had no idea of the extent of damage-It was 75 miles wide and covered 800 miles from ill-Iowa  through Nebraska and other areas Initial estimates are 30 percent of all crops ARE GONE-could be higher-Elevators destroyed by the thousands etc Im very thankful he didnt lose any animals-I even have a heifer at his place This is a short but very sobering video-probably doesnt scratch the surface but scary just the same O0

Tree through the roof of our house, building collapsed, wires down, crops totaled for miles, untold number of metal sheets of all sizes everywhere.  My daughter in Cedar Rapids lost the west 1/4 of her roof, neighbor across the street lost her entire roof that flew through the west side of another house.  Take a look at the satellite photo of the state of Iowa after the storm if you can.  Devastating.  I've seen wind damage many, many times.  Nothing remotely close to this.  Our timber pasture looks a little like the area surrounding Mount St. Helens after the eruption.  Is there any way we can start 2020 over again?

Why?? You want to take 2020 for another round?? Personally I'd like to wrap it up, put a nice little bow on it, then toss it out with the bathwater.  (lol)
But in all seriousness, I'm sorry to hear about all the devastation down there
