Winter Storm Version 2.0

Here we go again!

Last Thursday we were told to batten down the hatches for a huge winter storm. The powers that be in the weather department were not lying.

We started with sleet and then moved to a freezing rain bit. By the time the snow began in earnest, we had about a half inch ice on the ground. That was followed by 15 inches of snow, a blizzard warning and a Sunday filled with digging out!

Now before you might feel sorry for me ... we were very fortunate! We did not lose our electric as many did; and some still do not have their power back on yet!

To top this off as I write this blog .... the freezing rain has begun in a fury. We are right now under the following weather statements: a Blizzard Warning & a Winter Weather Advisory. So as I said at the beginning, here we go again!

Don't you just love Iowa in the late winter/early spring. I just love February and March, NOT! Yesterday, while cleaning up some snow and trying to chip off some ice, I noticed a robin looking mighty depressed. What a great place to live!
