    Re: Blizzard - but not the delicious Dairy Queen kind.

    I love DQ blizzards though. I'm hoping for a snow day tomorrow.........

    I was also hoping my family would be able to have their sledding party the weekend before New Year's so I could attend, but with this much snow, it may not be a go/any fun :( 4-wheelers can't drive through this much (no snowmobile) and trying to get a path going down our hills through 18 inches of snow will take all day.

    Re: Blizzard - but not the delicious Dairy Queen kind.

    Last night I think they said this was the biggest storm we will get since Dec 2009. Think I heard that right anyway.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    that was the time we had a blizzard in Ames during Dead Week and they cancelled class.

    Looks like we're going to get a whole lot of snow in the Madison area.

    We've got them in Davenport and some of the nearby towns. I don't know how far they have spread out from there. The ice cream is incredible. Some people don't like their shakes and malts because they are so thick you can turn them upside down and nothing falls out. I'm not part of that minority, obviously.

    This about the 12teenth post where you said hou hope you get a snow day. My guess is youre the lady at work that talks about cancelling work for a week before a storm, and when they dont, you dont come in anyway. Ami right?
