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.

      My friend homeschooled in the late '80's, early 90's. There were two homeschooling groups in her town: 1) the old hippies who met at the food coop and 2) the religious fundamentalists. Guess which group she chose? Clue: one family had a child named Taj Mahal.

      @Giraffe The "old hippies" homeschooling group were no strangers to cannabis consumption which may have resulted in offspring with funny names.

      I homeschooled my kids and not only am I not offended, I agree with her 100%.  It was one of the major reasons we kept to ourselves and never got involved in any groups.  I knew we'd encounter the white nationalist types and didn't want my kids ANYWHERE near them.

      Reading the prosecution's statement and just want to say: God bless the attorneys and legal team willing to do this work and eviscerate Duggar's attempted justification and defense. I imagine it's just legal form, but I also love reading that "Duggar" is arguing X, Y, or Z in their response - because it again and again names the fact that HE IS THE AGENT - with credible allegations of downloading and viewing these horrible things and with trying to squirm out of punishment with weak ass arguments. 

      Also: "The application of this enhancement is based on the unrebutted testimony of Bobye Holt, which was corroborated by the self-serving testimony of his own father.2" 

      Just applause all around. These people see right through JB. 

      And re: the letters - standing ovation:

      "Many more describe his conviction generally as an unfortunate happenstance—something that has simply befallen him despite his best efforts to avoid it.  That is precisely the problem. While Duggar is apparently continuing to tell those around him that he is the victim of “an unscrupulous young man” or an even broader conspiracy, that theory is irreconcilable with the straightforward, common-sense evidence produced at trial, which overwhelmingly reflects his culpability in repeatedly downloading and viewing CSAM on his work computer. It is also irreconcilable with the goals of sentencing, which include protecting the public and affording adequate deterrence."

      "Absent some recognition from Duggar of his crimes and  his need to address his demonstrated and long-standing sexual interest in children, it is unlikely that that he will ever view his conviction as anything other than proof that he needs to be more circumspect and secretive the next time he engages in conduct involving child sexual abuse. It is equally unlikely that he will ever receive the treatment and accountability needed to prevent him from reoffending should he maintain this posture. In fact, given the apparent success of his blame tactics with some of the individuals he intends to surround himself with after his release from incarceration, it is not just unlikely—it is inconceivable.  "

      No grey area there. Hope the judge is listening and convinced.

      I think the Vuolo's absence could also reveal estrangement within the Duggar clan. If they knew JB and Michelle would be there, for instance, or some other sibling who has privately supported Josh - maybe they would rather opt out. It could be that Jinger is working through her own story more - and maybe they are all coming to terms with their parents' failure to protect them or respond appropriately. Can you imagine working through that as an adult and sitting trapped on a boat with your fake parents gloating about another marriage? Yuck. I feel a bit panicky just thinking about it.

      It might have nothing to do with Lawson or the Bates but just the cost of going to a friend's wedding wasn't worth seeing the extended family. 

      I have for sure missed out on events like that because I couldn't handle seeing my abusers.
