Well the latest storm has passed through on its way out east. We had about 7.4 inches where I live. Looks like the heaviest snow was in the Cedar Rapids, Williamsville, Charlotte, and Solon areas with 11 inches of snow. My sister in Waukee said they had about 10 inches where they were. And of course some moron was clocked going 114 miles an hour on Interstate 35 cause they wanted to get back to school.
We had just over an inch of snow yesterday around here. Road conditions went downhill fast. My dad said he measured about 1.2 inches this morning. And tomorrow the forecasters are thinking we're going to get hit with some heavy snow here in eastern Iowa. Right now they think we'll get anywhere from 3 to 8 inches with higher amounts possible in places. Yay. So tonight after dinner I'm going to head in to get some provisions. Including the dijion potater salad I'm craving once again.
We had our first snowstorm of the season here Friday into Saturday. There was anywhere from 4.5 inches up to a little over 9 inches of snow. (We were in the spot that had 9 inches). They had about 50 cars going off the road during the storm. I went in town Friday afternoon to send in my work computer and take care of a couple other things. Including getting dinner for Saturday in case the weather was still bad Saturday evening. It was pretty much over by noon on Saturday and the roads were fine later that afternoon. I went out and got a bunch of pictures yesterday so I'd have good Christmas card photos. I hope the snow sticks around through the end of the year. My niece was out having a good time in the snow, rolling around and trying to eat all the snow in her parents yard.
We had about 2.5 inches of snow last night into this morning where I am here in Iowa and our first winter weather advisory of the season locally. As usual with early season snowfalls it probably won't last all that long and melt right away. I knew something weather related was about to hit the fan yesterday when I saw a DOT truck out on the highway spraying down the northbound lanes with pre-treat and the southbound lanes had the streaks from that treatment already. If it does melt by Thursday I might be able to get my morning socially distant turkey trot in then.
And down in Des Moines today they got pelted with up to nine inches of snow today. I have a friend in Cedar Rapids who had a picture of her back yard, which was completely covered with snow. We just had a slight dusting up here - my dad is a spotter for the NWS and he said we just had three tenths today. Seriously, Mother Nature, can you at least wait a few more weeks with the snow. Like in to November? Of course it's supposed to be pretty warm mid week. All four seasons in one week once again.
PornHub, stepping up to the challenge once again... bostonmagazine.com/news/blog/2017/03/13/pornhub-snow-plow-boston/ Lol. Could you imagine the fit some of the reiches would have if one of these PornHub trucks showed up to clear the parking lots at their churches?
