Boston is 50 inches with a norm of 41 for the entire season. Now they're talking about a possible 1-2 feet for Wednesday!! Can't wait for April, May even March anything is better than this!!!

We haven't had much this year; last year there was SOOOO much, I really thought I might not make it through the winter. We had a big storm with a few inches in mid-November, followed by one early in Dec. that left us with a bunch of 5-foot-deep drifts, followed by more and more and more. . .then it ALL melted while I was hospitalized in late March, and suddenly it was warm! (muddy and floody, too)
Now the grass is still sticking up through what little snow we have, and I've only skiied once the whole winter!

Lovely thing about Iowa winters: no matter how little or how much snow, no matter if it's -35 or +55 on February 1, there's ALWAYS somebody who will say "Now, this is NOT a typical Iowa winter". And then they will tell you a story of some OTHER winter. And 2 years later, when THAT Iowa winter repeats itself, the same person tells you. . ."Now, this is not a typical Iowa winter."

This is not a typical Boston Winter!!! We have gotten 50 inches of snow in January alone this year. Another foot or so last night. No place to put the snow!!! Even the snow blower can't blow it over the mounds on the corners of the driveway at this point. Poor Ron had to blow it in the street in front of the mailbox and then clean in front of the mailbox with the blower blowing it over the mounds in the front of the yard! We'll be taking pictures later and try to post them. Charleston sounds lovely right now!!

Have to find the mailbox to check it!

Yikes! We're supposed to be getting some pretty bad weather starting tonight; freezing rain, very heavy snow, whiteout conditions, extremely cold conditions, the whole package! We'll probably be getting blackouts so I might disappear off the face of the internet for a week or two at maximum. Everyone in town's in a panic mode and they're buying whatever supplies they need at the last second. We just need to get some gas for the generator and we'll be set!


I gave up the best thing that ever happened to me.

Ohio is going to be bad also. The rescue lady called and told me not to freak out if we lose power. She has become a good friend, so she knows I will freak out and worry about my birds. She said if I lose heat I could bring my birds to her house. If you hear of an Ohio woman wrecked in bad weather with exotic birds in her car, it's most likely me! We actually won't lose heat, but the blower could stop.

Even better, our winter storm warning has turned into a blizzard warning! I think I'm gonna get my camera ready since I've never taken pictures of a blizzard before. It sounds pretty despite being y'know, a storm of wind, blinding snow, and horrible cold.

Be careful and batten down the hatches! It's due to hit here starting tomorrow with 6-8 inches and then full tilt on Wednesday with a foot. Hoping it goes south or north of us this time.

We are about to get some more; the "faux spring" we had for a few days didn't last.
One nice thing is, when it gets cold and windy like this, at least the boys around town pull their pants up!

Well I spoke to soon. My morning started off at 5am so I could shovel snow out of the driveway. Suppose to get between 18 and 24 inches today. That is a lot for us all at once frown . So today in between birdie play sessions, I will periodically be going back out to shovel again. We have a huge double wide driveway, so if you all dont hear from me, send out a rescue team lol. I may be laying face down in the snow hehe.

Deborah, same here. My husband used the snowblower before he left for work, but I know I'll be shoveling a few times today before he gets home. Good thing my boss understands me being a weather wimp and staying home today (and tomorrow)!

It hasn't been snowing too long here and it's already getting deep! It's nice to look at though.

Ugh! I woke up at 4:00 am to hear howling winds, thundersleet, and heavy showers of sleet and freezing rain hitting our windows! No school today, city frozen, airport closed and two super bowl teams supposed to face the media today! Hope they weren't expecting resort weather this week, because it is now not expected to get above freezing before Saturday, yikes!

At least I don't have to shovel snow, though... smile Stay warm everyone up there in the midwest, and please, keep your nasty weather away from Texas for the rest of winter - we don't handle this stuff too well!

Left for work this morning to no snow and just came home on the slipperiest roads of the season with only 5 inches on the ground so far. They were reporting on the radio that there are accidents everywhere and one pile up in the NE corner of the state. Enough aready!! At least it's Feb 1st, 28 days until March Woo Hoo!!!
Keep safe everyone and to those of you that aren't used to driving in the snow keep it slow and steady. Let the car start moving on its own don't give it the gas you'll only slide and don't brake hard, tap the pedal, 2nd gear is your friend when driving, safe 1st for the deep stuff! And most importantly of all don't fight the wheel keep it gentle! Turn into a skid not out of it.
