Cedar Rapids is Demolished

Photo from the Gazette of Downtown Cedar RapidsAs bad as things are getting in Iowa City, Cedar Rapids is even worse. The entire downtown area has been completely demolished. I was watching videos of people driving big boats around the downtown streets. No doubt there will be a Hurricane Katrina style clean up in Cedar Rapids in the coming months.

I really feel for the businesses and people just up the road there and hope that things will continue to recede.

We have stopped by a friend's house on the west side of town to get a quick shower. Travel back to the east side of Iowa City is not currently advised.
