RE: Richs storm

Ceres: Here, just a couple hours east of you, it is slightly after 5
a.m. and still snowing voraciously...Driving in this crap was pure heck
last night with 30 mile an hour winds making for near white out
conditions on the interstate...am wondering if I'll even be able to make
it home as the temps. have really dropped overnight and there was an
awful lot of wetness on the ground when I went outside for my break at 2
a.m. These April freak snowstorms are always a pain in the rear. Who'd
have thought near 90 degree weather last week, a snow storm this week,
and we're supposed to hit 60's by Thursday...it reminds me of that old
joke that you know you live in Iowa if you've ever worn your
snowboots/mittens in the morning and your shorts/sandals in the
afternoon...on the same day! Take care...stay warm and dry!

Subject: [CHAT] Richs storm

Rich, how bad is your storm at this point? What is predicted? We are
<br>receiving a blur of very large snowflakes, strong winds from the
East (this <br>is always a bad indicator) but it is still warm enough to
be melting as it <br>hits the ground. Weatherman says between 5 - 12."
<br> My husband had cleaned the snowblower and moved to storage at our
off <br>site garage last week and moved the lawn mower home. After
church today he <br>made a quick retrieval of the snow blower.<br> My
oldest granddaughter was scheduled for AllState Speech competition at
<br>Univ of Northern Iowa early tomorrow morning. Her family was going
to go <br>this afternoon as it is a several hrs drive. It has been
canceled already <br>with no reschedule. What a disappointment for her
as she is a senior.<br> This adds to the earlier discussion about weird
weather. Record was set <br>last week with 87 deg weather & a snow storm
a few days later. We have set <br>more records this year

than one can believe. <br> This could pretty much take care of a lot of
plants. My Royal Star <br>Magnolia is in full glory. I wrapped a couple
small Jap maples, Daphna <br>'Carol Mackie", Magnolia Butterflies and
Cornus florida 'Cherokee Chief' <br>(minus all its buds by the deer) in
burlap as they are first winter <br>plantings. I had not cleaned the
beds as I reminded my self it was only <br>April.<br> I am scheduled to
give a container garden program tomorrow evening for a <br>garden club
south of Des Moines. If I can make the trip I am not sure the
<br>weather will be warm enough to transport plants in and out.<br> Keep
us updated on your weather, please.<br> Ceres, Iowa zone
