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.

      When my son was in kindergarten, he had a really nice 5th grade buddy. Anytime the buddy saw him walking home from school, he would say hi. Which made my son feel like the coolest person ever. It was so cute. 

      Our kids’ school had 4th and K buddies. My daughter was in 4th and my son was in K. My son’s buddy was the most spirited boy in 4th grade ( eventually kicked out of school), and my daughter’s K buddy was taller than she was. Oh my the stories that ensued that year!

      Well there are still some countries that do this but he isn't willing to travel to those countries. 

      Perhaps we should take up a donation...?

      Our school does the same. My kinders just had their first get together with their 5 the grade buddies last week. It was adorable.

      Not wanting to mix older and younger kids bugs me. In my children’s school, they have assigned buddies. Which means once a week the buddies get together in a classroom and do a project together. The buddies are often Kindergarten/5th grade, 1st/4th grade, and 2nd/3rd grade. I think it’s great for older kids to be good mentors to younger kids. And for younger kids, they learn that not all older kids are intimidating or unapproachable. 

      I think districts do it for space/efficiency purposes. Our local district has three K-2 schools, a 3-5 school, 6-8 middle school and 9-12 high school.
