The storm

We got some drizzle here about 3:30 then changed to snow, just enough for a white skift. Now it's raining and about freezing out.

45 miles SW of Des Moines

 

Supposed to get worse after 9:00 here.  The state patrol wants everybody off the roads now.

60% of the time, it works every time.

We are having western Kansas 50+ mph winds. BTW ECIN just turn on the news. Iowa is shut down. The rain/snow line is only 100 miles east of here. Many areas 8+ inches of snow. Measuring it in 50+ mph winds is an interesting proposition.

 

Even the wife's work place is closed till at least noon and they never do that.

Re: The storm

Hey whats a little snow?  Got the cows milked and the driveways all blowed out. they have already blowed back in. Just eating a little before I go back out and blow out some more. Maybe pics later.

 

BTW haven't you guys gone out and shecked on your little corns and beans? Good farmers check on their stock on these cold wintery days! LOL
