October Iowa Snowstorm

Sign in to follow this  


And down in Des Moines today they got pelted with up to nine inches of snow today.


An early-season snowfall caused headaches in the area near Iowa’s capital city on Monday.

The National Weather Service office in Johnston issued a Snow Squall Warning for parts of Polk, Jasper, and Dallas counties around the Noon hour as a band of heavy snowfall moved through the area. Visibility was reduced, at times, below one-quarter of a mile, according to public reports near the Ankeny area. The heavy rate of snowfall was enough to overcome warm ground temperatures to accumulate rapidly, causing poor road conditions.

I have a friend in Cedar Rapids who had a picture of her back yard, which was completely covered with snow.  We just had a slight dusting up here - my dad is a spotter for the NWS and he said we just had three tenths today.

Seriously, Mother Nature, can you at least wait a few more weeks with the snow.  Like in to November?

Of course it's supposed to be pretty warm mid week.  All four seasons in one week once again.

      I saw her Instagram stories last night. I don't remember her exact wording, but it was something about how the best part of using Instagram for her is testifying for God, or leading people to Jesus, or something like that.   


      I think she meant to say "the ego boost it gives me". Easy to mix up.

      My guess is that after her previous husband left her for another man her self-esteem was in the basement. She might have seen Gary even in his worst moments as more than she deserved, and when he was complimentary toward her, a real keeper.

      This has been roughly my theory about her, as well. She may even have felt that Gary was her cross to bear, her penance. But there are other possibilities.

      Unless I missed it, I don't think we know the exact sequence of events - whether they tried to keep it together after her ex came out to her, or he fell in love with his current husband while still in the closet to her, or they broke up and both started dating and eventually met their new spouses, etc.

      I'd love to know if she was already steeped in rigid Baptist stuff (Gary says her church was "liberal" by his standards, but, by his standards, virtually everything is!) before her marriage ended, or if she went down that path after finding out her husband was gay.

      Since we've seen that the teasing goes both ways, and that Becky has a mean streak, I can even imagine her choosing Gary because she enjoys his being highly mockable due to his stupidity, a person who enjoys the back-and-forth of mutual insults, or both.

      While I'm here, I'll take sometime:



      Gary is frying turkeys and Godbothering!

      Becky spent most of yesterday desperately trying to meet some Tupperware goal before midnight. Today she posted a Thanksgiving greeting. Wonder if she was amused or annoyed by this answer, showing the detested mask:

      I think about Mary Trump's book, which unironically spoke about attachment trauma resulting in Trump's disorders and cruelties. The more we learn about attachment (in short, picking up your kids and soothing them when they cry), the sadder situations like Shiloh's and Abbie's other children.

      When my dad was adopted in the 1950s, he was five years old. He had spent his entire life tied to his crib. He was nonverbal and wore diapers. His mom cooked a chicken for dinner during his first weeks home and instead of eating what she put on his plate, he tried to eat the bones and scraps from the trash can. He didn't understand what to do with the actually edible parts.

      He had a better time of it in adulthood than most adoptees who experience that kind of early childhood trauma, and he ended up having an excellent career at an international relations organization, but the attachment issues affected him for the rest of his life. He was very "looking out for number one" in his interactions with people, even with his own kids.
