"Giants in the Earth"

Pictures like this always make me think of those Scandinavian and German settlers in the Midwest working their farms in the Spring during the late 1800s when they experience a Midwestern thunderstorm and how intimidating it must be the first time you see one.

A huge tornado funnel cloud touches down in Orchard, Iowa, Tuesday, June 10, 2008 at 9:04 p.m. The Globe Gazette and Mitchell County Press News reported that Lori Mehmen of Orchard, took the photo from outside her front door. Mehmen said the funnel cloud came near the ground and then went back up into the clouds. Besides tree and crop damage, no human injuries were reported.

Tells you something, graphically, about the flooding in Cedar Rapids.
