    Some storm...

    This crap has been going all day and doesn't look to be stopping.
    First it is the freezing rain. Then the stuff freezes on my tree in the front yard. Then all day the stuff breaks off and pounds chunks of ice on the roof of my house. Now the Thunder Snow is starting.
    Not to mention mediacom lost espn about 30 mins ago so I couldn't even finish watching the game(which might not of been that bad of a thing)
    I would say that this is the worst winter storm I have experienced in iowa, since that ice storm that canceled classes at ISU in 2000.

    Have other places in iowa been getting hit as hard as cedar rapids?

    Also took a picture earlier of the chunks of ice:


    not to bad but when they are falling on your roof every 30 sec's or so all day gets rather annoying

    It snowed in Phog Allen today - a real blizzard against our team. At least we made the fifties.

    Re: Some storm...

    5 inches of snow last night with an additional 10 to 14 inches of snow expected between now and Sunday night. The weather guys and gals have been throwing about the Blizzard word for tonight and tomorrow.

    Is it spring yet?

    I agree, ice storms are terrible. I wasn't trying to one up your post, you asked about the storm and I responded. I prefer snow over ice anytime.

    Ditto that. Snow is manageable. It's very tough to manage ice.

    Put snow on top of ice and that's a very nasty combo.

    Yeah, the roads in Ames weren't too bad earlier, but since then it's been snowing non-stop. National Weather Service is calling for 8 to 12 inches here. Why, oh why couldn't this storm have come a few days earlier?


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    Re: Some storm...

    The people that were hit the worst are unable to respond to this thread due to no power. Parents in Northeast Iowa have been out since 8:30 this morning.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
