Thisbe is originally from New York, and she lived in Iowa for eleven years. Although she changes most of the place names, Iowans will likely recognize several eastern Iowa places and communities. It also includes the story of a wedding day tornado.

In last portion of the program, we hear from Debra Carneol of North Liberty. She will be running the World Marathon Challenge.
