Did you know Iowa has the crooked street in the world?

4/11/2019
I was trying to decide what to post today so googled "fun facts about Iowa" This is what I found:
*Ripley's Believe It or Not" has dubbed Brulington's Sanke Alley the most crooked street in the world. Has anyone seen this alley? Please respond and let me know. Hmm, I'm feeling a road trip coming on. Just tripped it on my GPS and its 2 hr. away. Hey, I can be there at 9:16am!! Well, maybe not today, after all, it's raining. But, when I go, Ill post a picture. Remember, let me know if you've been there!

Do you remember the BLIZZARD of 1973??

4/9/2019

Does anyone remember the blizzard of April 9th, 1973? I remember it well. I lived in Iowa City at the time and they were asking anyone with snow mobiles to help get stranded folks off I-80. I read an article in The Gazette where the storm started on 4/8 with 3" of snow predicted. The storm ended on 4/10, Tuesday, with accumulations of 15-19 inches of snow. See pictures and article in
