Over the past couple weeks Iowa has been getting hit with a whole shitload of snow. Last week the Dubuque area received just over a foot of snow. And they've been getting really hammered the past few hours with eastern Iowa experiencing blizzard conditions.
Up here in the Twin Cities we mostly missed out on the worst of it, with the heavier stuff all down in Iowa and southern Minnesota. Right now it looks like the Metro is going to get one to three inches of snow between tonight and tomorrow. It had already started when I finished work today and has been going steady for a while now. Problem is tomorrow it's also going to blow around. Then it is supposed to get really fornicating cold here in the Twin Cities. With temperatures below zero even before wind chill is accounted for.
A couple local breweries that have staff living next door decided to open for the customers that live in safe traveling distance. Which I would say is under a mile. Otherwise a lot of other stuff is closed right now. I got an email from the Dubuque paper since I still have an account with them and follow the news there saying there would be no physical paper tomorrow. I let my mom know not to expect the physical paper tomorrow and she told me dad measured 16" of snow. That was in addition to the snow they had already received.
Yeah, so for those of us in the Upper Midwest weather this weekend is a big, giant, UGH.
