  1. It’s only a couple of miles from our place. We were lucky, with only a few broken windows and some minor damage to the roof. But with only temporary repairs, we have experienced one of the worst winters in recent memory. On 8/10/2020, that was. We didn’t even get under contract to do the repair work until November between the insurance firm dragging its feet and all the contractors being booked up.

  2. Does 80mph sound like a low wind estimate? The design wind speed in Des Moines is 115 mph, so I would expect this kind of serious damage to be done by wind closer to that speed.

  3. I know the work put in to create them after watching smarter regular YouTube channels on them and how they are not inexpensive. Hoping to be covered by insurance

  4. Compared to the other destruction in the aftermath of the floods, this was very minor. Often, these bins were empty. IA, Cedar Rapids, was the hardest hit by this storm. Compared to what is left standing, take a look at the many trees with cedar rapids. I would say that during this storm, more than half of all the homes sustained damage from trees.

    Source – live next to the rapids of cedar.

  5. A company I used to work with designed for Zahner Metals a couple of “showcase” buildings, which did all the metal work for Gehry’s most famous buildings. These guys are freakin ‘wizards, and I really have a lot more respect for them than I have for the guy himself.

  6. This is from the Derecho storm of Aug 2020. For over two weeks, some towns in Iowa have been without electricity. Not much of a warning and this kind of wind was not predicted by anyone. They were basically hurricane like winds. Some areas had winds of 140 mph for a period of time,

  7. I am no wind loading expert at all. Is this the equivalent of an elephant walking through an office block? An oil tanker crossing a bridge on the road?

  8. “grain bins”grain bins”that’s so weird I wonder why they’re shaped like that”that’s so strange, I wonder why they’re shaped like that”oh right”oh right

  9. A company I used to work with built for Zahner Metals a few “showcase” buildings, which did all the metal work for Henry’s most famous buildings. These guys are freakin ‘wizards, and I really have a lot more respect for them than I have for the guy himself.

  10. Everybody’s been talking about it for a damn month. He took out my deck and messed up my whole neighborhood. Chainsaws have been removing limbs for days. No energy sucked, too,
