    Snow's Comin'

    Isn't it electric? I love it the day before a big storm, there's this feeling of urgency.

    I was trying to plan ahead and put my truck on our garage, but I couldn't start the lawn mower to get it out of the way. Go figure...

    Snow is already over, switched to rain about 7:00.

    Rain and 24 degree temps are a fun combination.

    Re: Snow's Comin'

    Yeah, we are supposed to go over to a family get together at noon, and then to some friends after that. Hopefully the rain will just melt all the ice and be done with it. I am sure the main streets are fine.

    I just looked out the window and people are moving at normal speed on deleware in ankeny.

    Re: Snow's Comin'

    Raining at 26 degrees isn't a good combination. I would figure roads will be crap except for the well traveled roads that have the sodium chloride sprayed/spread on the road. I think I read we could have 1/2 of ice before the evening arrives....

    You're putting your truck on your garage? Ok... Well be careful it will be icy up there!

    Great, now the lights are flickering in ankeny. At least the fireplace is gas.

    Just heard on KCCI that they are shutting down operations at the Des Moines airport for a few hours because a couple plains slid off the taxiway and are backing up traffic.

    Wow, she sleet is coming down really hard in ankeny, if it were a bit colder up high this would be a huge snowstorm.

    Can you imagine if this storm was a week earlier. A few planes sliding off the runway would have been a national emergency.

    Re: Snow's Comin'

    This one is odd because the temps are so perfect. Ice, followed by rain likely back to snow.
