Dubuque Had Record Snow Yesterday




Dubuque had the largest amount of snow to fall in a single day in over 8 years yesterday.


The largest single-day snowfall in eight years in Dubuque snarled local roadways for a good portion of Thursday, with authorities asking motorists to stay put at times.

A total of 9.4 inches of snow was reported at Dubuque Regional Airport as of 6 p.m. The airport is the City of Dubuque’s official reporting location for the National Weather Service.

“Initially, we had 3 to 5 inches forecasted for Dubuque, but we knew there was a chance for a heavier band of snow that had a potential for a higher amount,” said David Cousins, a weather service meteorologist. “It set up over Dubuque.”

Before that the last time Dubuque received that much snow in a single day was on Feb 1, 2015 when ten inches fell.  That was also the last time Dubuque had double digit snow fall.  We used to get those on a semi-annual basis but not in recent years.

It's supposed to be a bit quieter this weekend and warmer too so I don't think that snow will hang around too long.

Even up here in the Twin Cities we've had a bunch of snow melting lately due to the warmer temperatures.

      Just had my anatomy scan today. Would it be awful if we revealed the sex of number 2 At silly girl's first birthday party? We have the envelope, I just don't know If we want to open it before or during her party or give it to my sister in law to bake the color into her cake? I don't want to feel like I'm taking attention off of her

      Guess I should update again? Frieda (Kiki, we renamed her) is here since the end of February 2021. She came with a bunch of problems, but is the best dog ever and is doing better every day. But we do now know how a dog with ptsd looks like. For real, not joking. If she is triggered during the day, she wakes up screaming at night. Not like dogs dream, but literally screaming. Other than that she went with us on countless trips, loves hiking and even cable cars. She is one heck of a fearless dog in situations who do not remind her of her old life. 
      My Grandpa passed away last May and I'm still grieving a lot. After sharing a house with my grandparents for over 30 years it is just horrible to lose one of them. Even though it was his decision and he got to go like he wanted. At home, in his bed during the night without doctors. He would have need more care and he did not want more care. So after turning 90 he decided to let go and became weaker and weaker. 
      In other news my dad stops working for good on April 1st. Retirement time. Keep my Mum and myself in your prayers. We really do not want him at home all the time. Haha!
