Davenport or bust - or should I say, Davenport or flood
We arrived in town an hour before a massive storm hit - as we were driving through Moline on the way to the Mississippi, we literally saw a funnel cloud forming - possibly the eeriest sight of our lives. Although it wasn't the most auspicious start to Luke's first Midwest Adventure, we have since begun to really enjoy the town. On Father's Day we took a walk onto the Skywalk to witness the impact on downtown. Fortunately, the city has an award-winning downtown design that minimizes damage. Needless to say, we are VERY glad that we live in a hill.
