Sign reads: Winds blow strong, waters rise. Storms roll in with Biblical size. Rains die down, waters subside. Cedar Rapids carries on with Iowa pride."


I found this message while watching a video montage of Katrina (set to Led Zeppelin's "When the Levee Breaks") on YouTube. I thought it was rather appropriate, so I changed a couple of words and the location around, drew a quick pic of the Hawkeye logo and the state of Iowa as well, and taped it to the window of my apartment. Did the same with a piece of cardboard in a rear window of my car.
