  1. And I don't mean hammered as in getting drunk either. NWS is expecting about a foot of snow around here. Right now it's not doing much of anything out. Just cold and windy. It'll be a good day to stay in tomorrow and just camp out at home.

    Cold weather on tap

    Yeah it's supposed to be really cold here in the upper midwest over the next few days. For the Twin Cities the NWS is saying mid 30s tomorrow before the temp drops down close to zero Wednesday and Thursday. Brrrrr

    Another January Snowstorm

    Had some snow today up in the Twin Cities. Iowa also had a bit of snow today as well with eastern Iowa getting about to 1 to 6 inches of snow. I didn't have any trouble getting to or from work today even with the weather hitting the fan. Supposed to be clear out tomorrow but it a bit colder. Depending on what the mortgage and realtor say tomorrow might go looking at some more places tomorrow. Regardless I'm going to try to sleep in a bit tomorrow morning.
  4. We're in the process of digging ourselves out of the snow. Dad said we had a little over four inches at the farm yesterday. Looks like a lot of places here in Iowa did get that six inches the weatherman promised Friday night. Couple spots even got close to 8 inches. Brother backed out at the last minute on taking me to church this morning so mom did. Which caused issues cause they wanted to go to their own church at the same time. Mom wound up taking me and dad met her at their church at 10. I don't know that I would have gone otherwise but this is my last Sunday as a regular member of the church and I said I wanted to serve one more time at the altar. I had been there about eight years. There was only 12 of us at church today with most people backing out due to the weather. The roads are getting better but still kind of covered. I walked to a brewery after church and it wasn't too bad. It was just about one mile. Mostly flat and even a bit downhill. Buildings acted as windblocks and I was layered up so I didn't freeze too bad. It's only 10f as I write this. Brrr....
  5. It started snowing shortly before 10am central here. By noon we had 2.5 inches of snow on the ground and it's still coming down pretty good. There's a heavy band of snow moving through eastern Iowa right now. We'll probably have four inches by the time it's over later today. Of course Iowa drivers can't go more than a few months without forgetting how to drive in winter weather. Including this moron was was clocked going 111 mph this morning.
  6. It's supposed to get down into the mid 20s for lows over the next few days with highs only in the mid 40s. Finally pulled the window unit out of my room at home this evening, I think I won't need it anymore for a few months. It's supposed to be nicer this weekend so a bike ride into town to go to church may be in order and have my brother bring my car in with the bike rack to give me a ride home then.

    It's Not Over Yet

    Iowa is about to get hit with the winter storm that hit the Rockies not too long ago. Right now it looks like we're getting several inches of snow over the next couple days. I cut my job interview trip short and started to head back home, I'll have to do the interview on zoom. I was looking forward to meeting my potential new employer in person and checking out the town too. Ugh. Here in the upper Midwest it always seems like winter has one last blast before giving up and letting spring come in full time. In 2018 when I was in Minnesota for school we got hit by a blizzard in April which delayed me getting home for a day. Two weeks later I was mowing the lawn at home.

    How cold is it?

    How cold is it here in Iowa? Cold enough I'm now getting messages saying hey plug in your car if you want it to start next time... Yeah, you know it's cold when you start getting those messages from GM.
  9. Yeah it's quite cold here in Iowa. The weather service says it's -8 here now. That's before wind chill. With the wind child it feels like -28 out. It's so cold out I'm getting alerts from GM that the cold might immobilize my vehicle if it's not plugged in. I wish I could escape to a warm climate right now.
  10. 47of74


    It was minus 17 when I woke up this morning. Currently it’s minus 15 out. That’s before windchill comes in to. We’ll have to see if we can get up above zero today. I must be crazy since I’m looking to move further north now.
  11. Yeah, mother nature you can stop anytime now. And of course after this the precipitation goes away but it's supposed to get really cold around here. So looking forward to spring now.

    Number Two Has Arrived

    Now we’re getting the number two in the one two punch I mentioned last weekend. My dad said we’ve had about 7.5 inches so far today. According to the weather service my sister in Des Moines got about a foot of snow.
  13. 47of74

    Another one is coming

    And now for the latest attractions we have another storm coming up this weekend. Starting out tomorrow with a wintry mix including freezing rain before transitioning over to all snow. I've heard anywhere from four to ten inches this weekend by the time it comes to an end on Sunday. Just what we need. More snow. Dear Mother Nature, Please stop now. Thank you 47of74

    Coming Attractions

    We didn’t get much snow Saturday night. We just had a couple inches here in Iowa and most of it was clear by noon. Of course they’re still saying we’ll have a snowpocalypse on Monday and Tuesday so we’ll have to see what happens then.
  15. 47of74

    One Two Punch

    Well it looks like we've got a one two punch coming here in the upper Midwest, with a storm coming today into tomorrow, then another one coming Monday into Tuesday. Depending on who you go to for weather and where in Iowa you're located it looks like it'll be anywhere from one to four inches tonight into tomorrow. They don't know yet how much snow we'll get next week or where exactly it's going. The local ABC station is thinking it'll be centered south of US 20. So this winter we had a good storm in December that dropped almost a foot, which mostly melted right before Christmas. Then right after Christmas we had more snow which has stuck around. Now it looks like we'll be adding to the total. Yay.

    After the storm

    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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.

    October Iowa Snowstorm

    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.

    First snow of the season

    Got some snow this morning here in eastern Iowa. It was coming down pretty good this morning but most of it didn't stick since the ground is still fairly warm. Looks like the next few days the weather will be cold and windy before warming up a bit by Thursday. Mother Nature, couldn't you have waited until November before doing all this.
  21. 47of74

    Yeah Summer is Coming

    I finally got around to putting in the window unit in my room today. (We have central air but the way the HVAC was designed I need a window unit to cool my room as my room is at the end and it can't keep up). I think this is about the latest I've put it in. Usually I put it in earlier so I'm not putting it in when it's 1,000 degrees in the shade.
  22. Winter isn't quite done with Iowa yet. We had snow off and on all day. It didn't amount to much and did not stick though when it hit the ground. What little did stick melted right away once the snow came out. I went for a quick bike ride this afternoon and the pavement was dry. Of course the wind gusts probably helped with that. On Easter Sunday it looks like we could have some more snow which might even be accumulating. A few inches are possible. I do have to say since we're all going to be stuck at home anyways this would be a good year for it. Save the nice weather on Easter for years when we can be around friends and family. We're far enough north that Easter weekend can vary considerably in the type of weather conditions experienced. Some years it's cold and generally a miserable time to be outside for any length of time. Other years no jacket is required and it's almost shorts and t-shirt weather on Easter. Some years the trees, grass, etc have not yet come back to life. Others the trees have their leaves and we've already mowed for the first time. Next year Easter is supposed to be on April 4. It will be interesting to see how the weather shakes out then. Hopefully it'll be a much more pleasant Easter that we can celebrate normally, with the horrors of Fuck Face and his fucked up response to the corona virus being in our rear view mirror.
  23. The old saying here in Iowa is if you don’t like the weather forecast just wait 24 hours. It’ll either ge much better or worse. Case in point tomorrow. Yesterday it sounded like we were going to get hit with a snowpocalypse here. Fast forward 24 hours and now it looks like most of it is going south of us.

    Got a bit nicer today

    After a couple days of it being fornicating cold out it got a bit nicer today. I got my vehicle washed. Yeah I know it won't stay clean for very long but she had a layer of dirt that I was getting tired of looking at. Meanwhile, several members of my family are on their way to a Caribbean cruise so they'll be in for several days of it being nice and warm. So I'll be going over to my brother and sister in law's place reguarly over the next week to do some cat/house sitting. I already got the don't unplug the fridge request this time. Along with some other requests as well.
  25. And the forecast around here is so cold tonight that I got the first one of these alerts for the season... It's supposed to drop to about -8 below tonight. Cold enough to freeze one's reproductive equipment off along with other extremeties. Have I mentioned lately my desire to be back in Lima, Peru lately?
