October Iowa Snowstorm




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.
