    Re: Snow Pictures

    Every once in a while in a weak moment I think it would be nice to see a snowstorm again. Your beautiful pictures reminded me of why I so enjoyed leaving it behind....plowing/shoveling snow. Thank you.

    Re: Snow Pictures

    I hate to say it, but all the hubub this storm has gotten, I'm not very impressed. When we had the blizzard here in Illinois 2 years ago, I literally had to start putting snow into a cooler and carry it to the top of the pile to dump. I had just gotten done shoveling out my drive when the snow plow came through the culdesac and re-pushed everything to the ened of my driveway, leaving me a 6 foot pile to push through again.

    No offense, snow is snow, but man, you literally would have thought this storm was the Mayan prophecy come true the way I've been hearing about it here in Illinois.

    Here is a shot from just before noon from inside patrol car near Cedar Rapids.Attachment 17135


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.

    Don't worry. I didn't take it from the back seat.

    Honestly, I didn't mean it as dicky as it sounded towards people in Iowa as much as this "sensationalism" of the weather has gotten out of control. Literally, I've been hearing about this in Illinois all day. How Big, How Bad, how destructive, hell, the weather channel even gave it a name of Draco. I just expected more, that's all.

    The Weather Channel announced earlier in the year that they will begin naming each winter storm just as the Hurricane Center names each hurricane. So Draco is the 4th winter storm of the season thus far. You are right that it is nowhere NEAR the storm Chicago had, but it has caused a 30-car accident near Ft.Dodge, and numerous power outages, road closures, fatalities, and downed trees, so it has demonstrated that it is a major storm even if it is not equal to the monstrous storm Chicago experienced.
