WOW. I lived in TN my whole life. So moving to Iowa has been a definite experience. I’ve found the area to be beautiful and people friendly. I knew I would get to see some snow……..but, WOW! The first snow/ice was on Thanksgiving. That one was only about 2 or so inches. The next was one week later, another 3-4 inches. And this morning a thick, glassy layer of ice on top of all of the misc ice/snow that did not melt. That we have had three frozen precipitation incidents before Christmas is in itself, mind-boggling. But, the thought that it did not melt away before getting another is unbelievable for a Southern gal. Nothing stops here…school is open, stores on a normal schedule, etc.
Update: just got a call from the school system…I spoke too soon. The schools are closed today. The ice is rather ugly out there and I don’t think it’s stopping anytime soon.
The best part of this whole snow thing is the sheer and utter joy it brings to the girls. Check it out:
