changing. greg edwards they always wanted to do their broadcast in front of a silo, in the middle of a corn field, and we were saying 'come to the city, use our skyline as your backdrop'. and the city is proving to be more than a skyline: it's a profit center. the old spaghetti works has seen a caucus or two. it started business in 1978, two years after jimmy carter put the iowa caucus on the map. and every now and then, some foreign accents are heard ordering its eggplant parmesan or smothered chicken. jon scholl : you get some foreign press. you know, you get asian, you get canadian, you get hispanic ones, mexico, you know, it's great for the state to get different people in town. and it warms the heart of businesses that might otherwise find it hard to earn a buck during the cold, hard winter. in downtown, there's no room at the marriott where rooms start at 289 a night... we can't book a room at the less expensive hyatt place either. greg edwards : you probably won't find a hotel room downtown but you'll find a hotel in

"i was blown away." amazed to find the same type of snowboard he used to ride as a kid. "i told one of the owners, wow i learned how to snowboard on one of those boards and i haven't seen one since mine was stolen."
9:08 am
about 600 of these boards back in 1983, just as snowboarding started to take off. "didn't think too much of it. super excited to see it. snapped a picture to send to my uncle. he happened to be up visiting." hours later his uncle spotted an unusual marking on the nose. "see there's a 69 painted on there and my uncle had painted it on there way before he ever gave it to me." that's when lint picked up the phone and called the owners of earth and ocean boardshop. "and asked hi.. i said, where did you get that board from? it's super cool, but you're not going to believe this but that board was stolen from my grandparents house in like 1990 off the front porch." stunned .... "there was a little apprehension." "it's basically a shaped piece of plywood." owner eric aldridge then explained how he acquired the board. "it was snowboard season 2004 and this guy comes in ... " not only comes in, but leaves the board where it sat for six years. "last winter with the 4th year of drought we were pretty financially strapped so everything was for sale. and i actually slapped a price tag on that board." 900 dollars it read. much lower than the 6-thousand one just like it
9:09 am
"he told me merry christmas and gave me my board back." a priceless gift to it's rightful owner ... "it just made my day." who now plans to mount it on the wall of his game room ... along with this picture. "that way i can tell my kids and grand kids the story for years to come." lint says as soon as he brought the board home he stepped into it and discovered it's still set up the same way he rode it as a kid. still ahead on today in iowa saturday... severe winter weather is slamming many parts of the country... crews are busy clearing roads and rescuing stranded drivers what states are getting hit
