Nature in the Jerdees (Iowa) backyard


This morning Kim, Lulu and I (Adam) were suprised to see this guy chasing a doe around our front yard to our back yard. This is a little bit unusual considering we live in the middle of West Des Moines. There is a greenbelt nearby with a rather large herd of deer which sometimes stray into the neighborhood and the busy streets.

ISU squeeks past Colorado, and we were there!


Kim and Adam stuck through halftime after a terrible first half of football at the ISU/Colorado football game only to witness a tie for the best comeback in ISU football history. It came with a bizarre finish as most fans, players and coaches weren't even sure the game was over. There were two eerie moments of silence in a crowd of ~40,000 when the official announced when each kick to tie the game by Colorado was nullified. You could literally not hear a person speaking as he turned his microphone on to annouce that the game was over and Iowa State had won the game.
Then there was a roar as the fans rushed the field.
After waiting about 10 minutes we decided to join the crowd. Even after only winning 3 games all year, the fans still get excited enough to rush the field, amazing. It's so hard to be a cyclone fan you have to lavish in a victory when you can. The final score was ISU 31 Colorado 28.
