Are these shelters just for those homeless because of the weather, or would it apply to someone homeless due to lost job, illness, and eviction from trailer with no place to go in the bad weather we've been having? I have a friend who needs a place to go. He's got a hernea that needs repairing and no way to get it repaired and possibly has some mental or emotional problems tho anyone would who has been through all he has. Let me know if places are available for him. He's just turned 58 years old today. Thanks. praisepalm@hotmail.com

Did all of you see the link to the slide show of the ice storm which was listed below the link about people finding shelter in that motel? It's sad but it showed the reality of the wrath of the storm and we didn't have to rely on reporters to give it to us.

Makes me feel thankful to have missed the brunt of the storm though this winter may be far from over. I can understand why the pictures with people in them might not want to post their town but I was disappointed that most of the other pictures didn't say what town each picture was taken.

I have heard that the area around Carroll and Des Moines was hit hardest and saw at least one picture from Marshalltown.
