White Christmas in Iowa

Sent by my brother near the Quad Cities area:

Here's what the weather service says is in store the Q-C region as the holiday nears.
Snow will develop around midnight and continue intermittently through Tuesday afternoon producing new snowfall totals between 2 and 5 inches with temperatures well below freezing. Combined with winds of 15 to 25 mph, travel will be hazardous throughout the Midwest.
The snow will increase Tuesday night and into Wednesday with the potential for an additional 4 to 8 inches possible. Northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph Wednesday will result in drifting and blowing snow. Temperatures will be well below freezing. Travel will be hazardous throughout the watch area. From www.qctimes.com

Gee...aren't you glad YOU don't have to deal with it?

Or how's the state of affairs in Cinci?

Personally, I'm sick and tired of the black ice alternated with inches and inches of snow EVERY FREAKING DAY up here.

Adoro - I have a feeling that my nieces & nephew are to blame for all of the snow. Yup! They called their Grammy a couple weeks ago & asked her to 'blow snow' their way (Boston) - she did. Well, they called yesterday & told her that she can stop blowing. LOL

We're definitely going to have a white Christmas here in Iowa. I think we're getting another 2 to 4 inches today. The -2 for a low tonight. I hope Santa Claus puts on another layer before he heads to this neck of the woods.
