Ok Mother Nature you can stop now



Yeah, mother nature you can stop anytime now.


A strong cold front will be pushing through eastern Iowa on Thursday bringing freezing rain, snow, and possible blizzard conditions.

Winter weather alerts have been issued across eastern Iowa ahead of the system. Areas highlighted in orange from Waterloo to Tama are under a Blizzard Warning and a Winter Stor Warning issued for areas to the east between Highway 20 and Interstate 80. Heavy snow and high winds could lead to dangerous travel tomorrow afternoon and evening.

Wintry precipitation looks to move in between 6-9 a.m. Thursday morning and will quickly change over into snow by the late morning, early afternoon hours. Snow will then be falling through the evening and could be heavy at times. This could pile up on the roadways quickly and reduce visibility.

One of the bigger concerns is going to be the winds. Winds could gust between 30-40 mph throughout the afternoon and evening. This could lead to blowing snow and especially in open areas, blizzard-like conditions. Snow looks to end before 8 p.m., but blowing snow will still be a threat through the overnight hours and could linger into Friday morning as winds continue to stay high. Highs winds could also lead to a flash freeze and slick conditions on the roads.

And of course after this the precipitation goes away but it's supposed to get really cold around here.

So looking forward to spring now.

Looks like we had about 5 inches here.

Yeah, mother nature, please stop now.  Thank you.

      Honestly at this point, it would be best to separate Anna from EVERYONE and get her to a psychiatrist extremely skilled in deprogramming people from cults. No amount of prayer (and I am a semi practicing Catholic) will help her.

      Oh I don't think for a second that she'll leave either.  Just bored and musing about the hypotheticals.

      Hope against hope that with him going away for even a few years and her being forced into the role of single mom she might find her inner strength.  I know she'll have a ton of help with actually caring for the kids, but it is to be hoped that enduring the stigma of a husband in prison for that will show her if she can do that she can sure deal with the stigma of a divorce.

      I had a dream about the Duggars. Michelle died of a stroke.  Anna had either divorced Josh and he was in prison or he had died. JB and Anna got married. I was a bridesmaid. (I don't know them in real life and I can't imagine being a bridesmaid in that wedding.)

      Even if faced with overwhelming evidence of guilt, Anna ( and probably quite a few of the Duggars) will not hold Josh accountable.

      For them the terrible thing about the molestations and the Ashley Madison stuff was that it was made public- by liberal non believers who want to bring them down.

      Anna has had over a decade of a subsidised life with adulation from her army of humpers. She has a carefully crafted Instagram with her polished turd of  husband and staged, well dressed children where she addresses education, cuteness and church and occasionally shills crap.

      Her Twitter account is rather different- it is far more overtly political and she’s not afraid to call out the people she disapproves of. She also had a Parler account and I understand that is an echo chamber for self righteous Trump supporters. Even as far back as the DC days she was tweeting about gay people being bad parents (deleted after she was heavily criticised). 
      Her take will be that Josh didn’t create this material- evil people did and put it in his path. Her logic is that he hasn’t hurt any children- other people have. He can be forgiven and he is being singled out because of the family’s Christian beliefs. This is all part of her persecution/martyrdom complex. 
      There will be no divorce and she will yet again try to relaunch herself to her fans. However I hope this time she won’t be whining that her kids aren’t featured on TV enough.

      Also, we don't know the Duggar finances.  If she were to leave he owes child support and so if that means an audit of Duggar finances to see what if anything is in Josh's name, or Anna's.  I do think if this ever happened (it won't) they would be strongly advise to give her a generous payout in order to keep her from talking for cash or out of spite.  Not to mention how bad it would look even to their own people to leave the kids without basic resources.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘
