At first warning during the tornado outbreak last week, we decided to jump into the truck and become amateur storm chasers. Probably not the best idea . . . but who hasn’t done that before at one time or another?

We cruised over gravel roads between Iowa Falls and Alden, and speculated over the ever-changing clouds. We listened to the radio and were told most of the storm had gone south by Eldora, so we turned around to come home. About then, the skies darkened and rain drops left coaster-sized plops on the windshield. It briefly poured, let up, then poured again.
