    I dont know about him- I think the east missed some of what we got- and are still getting

    about 18 inches- gusts up to 60 MPH

    a couple of 9 foot high drifts in my driveway

    A couple of 100 foot plus wide drifts across the road

    He might have gone south

    regards from Iowa

    Rumor has it that Al Gore has cancelled his trip to Des Moines to discuss global warming.

    Sara Palin made it though.

    What does all this have to say about the world? lol

    Razor and Ellie..........I'm okay, just got in from trying to blow a little snow.........Wait, make that a lot of snow.

    It is really blowing and drifting here. I, in my infinite wisdom (yeah, right) didn't even try to go anywhere today.

    Just to darned nasty.

    Don't know how much we have so far, but it is substantial.

    When I hear, I'll let you know.

    I don't mind a little snow, but this is bordering on ridiculous......lol

    Oh well, we're from Iowa and I guess us flatland Midwesterners can handle it.

    Just be careful out there and thanks for the shout out.

    You take care now........

    Hauxfan!

    Hauxfan,
    Hold on for a few more weeks. When the Hawkeyes get to Miami and the Orange Bowl we will all warming up.

    Zardo, I think I'd like that....lol

    I think we had about 12 inches of snowfall with winds up to 45-50 mph yesterday. Lots of drifting and just plain bad driving.

    Streets are somewhat passable this morning, but they are snow and ice covered, so just be careful out there.

    To bad there isn't a quota on snow, as I think I've already reached my limit for the year. Don't know where I'm going to put any more, but will figure out something.

    Hauxfan!
