    Official Monday blizzard thread

    Just looked at it and it looks like 3-5 inches and blowing snow all day and night. We are also officially under a blizzard warning now.

    Re: Official Monday blizzard thread

    Blizzard-like conditions really aren't supposed to start until 6 pm anyway. Right now it's just all snow.

    Really coming down out here in Des Moines, we probably already have about 2 inches from this storm, and it just started this morning.

    Re: Official Monday blizzard thread

    This routine is getting old...thought last winter was abnormal...is this going to be a yearly thing now? We are lucky that we have experienced melting already this year or we would be in trouble this spring...but we still might be anyway!

    They will be closing soon. The schools in North Central Iowa that did open up will be closing in the next hour or so.

    Belmond-Klemme never opened; supposedly Wright Co. pulled their plows off the roads around 7:30 am.

    rural schools across the north have closed, but in the metro, i'd be quite upset if the metro schools closed early, it's not that bad in town and the blizzard warning doesn't kick in until tonight.

    I just read were La Nina (the cooling of the Pacific ocean) has reformed, last year's harsh winter was blamed on La Nina.
