You did not almost roll a tanker. You may have been in the
same general area of Iowa as what happened, but that had nothing to do

There was a Truck and Trailer repair shop in Muscatine that lost all their
building in the June 1st tornado. As a matter of fact, parts of one of
their buildings can be seen in the photo at this site:

Out of a strange twist of fate, they were the closest repair shop to me
yesterday so I went there.

I said, the story I heard was the people here could see the tornado coming
so they all got in their cars and drove away. I was told that was pretty
much how it happened.

To make a long story short, I pointed to Highway 61 and then told one of the
people I could have been a few different places when that tornado hit
including that stretch of highway 61. Then the person I was talking to said
"You were lucky."
