Three years ago today, one of the craziest storms hit Iowa – the Derecho of August 10th, 2020. As if 2020 wasn’t already weird enough.
I was at work, in my office, in West Des Moines, and here’s what the view looked like as the derecho rolled in. It’s a timelapse video that was taken with my iPhone sitting on the window sill as the storm came to town.
If you’ve forgotten how dark it got during the derecho, you’ll want to watch this video.
After the storm hit, I had a chance to travel north on Highway 17, and are some photos from the area between Madrid and Luther, Iowa.
