Crazy night here in C.R........ We had golf ball size hail for about 15 min, and monsoon/typhoon style rain. Just south of us in I.C. is where the worst went through. Glad you all are okay!

Yeah, Iowa City/Corralville and Muscatine area got hit hard. One of our drivers said a Dodge dealership up by IC looked like a bunch of hotwheels cars tossed in a box. I didn't even notice much thunder here in the middle of Davenport. One good thing about living in the middle of the city, I guess....
