First Serious Winter Weather of the Season




Looks like we'll be due for a couple inches of snow this morning. 


Active weather is still on track to move into eastern Iowa Tuesday. A mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow continues to look likely, and a winter weather advisory has been issued for the entire area for this incoming precipitation.

Be particularly mindful of this on Tuesday, as this is the first winter event for most areas. The precipitation will probably be out of here by mid-afternoon and when it’s all done a general 2-4″ snowfall is likely over northeast Iowa with less than that farther south toward Cedar Rapids and Iowa City.

And it looks like we'll be getting more on Wednesday.

We've had a few winter weather events over the past few weeks but nothing too major so we'll have to see if this turns out to be an actual winter system or another case of the several inches promised by a weather person being a no-show.

I hope the weather is cooperative Friday night into Saturday because I do want to go to my cousin's New Year's party since I'll be moving out of CovidKimIsStan the following week.

      Various members of my family have been reaching out to me since seeing the documentary. Their main question that wasnt fully answered by the documentary was “How did our family member get sucked into believing this?” So it’s been a good conversation-starter.

      It makes my heart sing to see all these comments about Chelsea and her sister. 

      Its going to annoy me til my dying day that we don’t know what went from Nicole and Chelsea always being together, the girl cousins all matching, to a sudden split where they don’t even like one another’s posts anymore. What went on!!?? 

      Not sure the education is that poor, I follow a massive amount of their church from when Chelsea went private and I had to follow all her friends to get her to accept me. Anyway lots of physicians assistances, RN’s, chiropractors etc from the graduates. 
      I don’t think the school turns out well rounded students but academically they seem to do pretty well. 

      I really worry about any LGBTQ young people in their church.  They’d have to be in the closet or leave.

      Oh my eyes! What sort of fresh hell is all this?


      I have so many words but so little time...that poor boy-child having to wear those awful bonnets nearly all the time.

      She is only one step down from that batty woman that used a ton of wedding dresses to make a Christmas tree and decorate her dining chairs.

      I'm going back in, wish me - and my eyes -  luck.

      In our last house, our dryer was on the first floor, against an exterior wall, so it vented right out the wall behind it. The vent opening on the outside was only about a foot off the ground. One night I tried to turn on the dryer and it made an awful thumping noise and then shut off. My husband took it apart to find a 5 foot rat snake wrapped in the motor fan. The builder had forgotten to install the exterior vent cover flap. That was a fun night. 

      In our case, it was a possum, and it died in the vent pipe after it fell down and couldn't crawl back up. And then my husband unknowingly started a heated dry cycle and left the house. I will never forget that stench!

      Moral of the story: clean the external entrance to your dryer vent regularly. If lint builds up and props the vent flap open, wildlife can get in.
