I’m not sure I want to know. Unless the answer is “no more.”

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeelp meeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Let’s waste time chasing cars around our heads

Somebody didn’t get the memo about the snow plow coming through.

Yep. That’s a car under there.

Everyone knows it’s Windy

December 9, 2009 | Iowa,Weather,Winter

We’re smack-dab in the middle of this blizzard. The wind is still raging outside. The kids are going a tad stir crazy. I’m hoping the wind dies down at some point today so we can get out and see what the sleds will do out there.

In the meantime, we’re trying to figure out our LP-gas hot-water tank. According to the manual, the settings have changed because something is blocked. (By snow perhaps?) Anyway. It smells like gas, so we need to figure it out. We’ll try to call the plumbing & heating company, but I’ll bet they’re hunkered down like the rest of us. If we can get anyone on the telephone, though, maybe someone knows more about this than we do.

Here’s the snow drift in front of the barn. The tractor with the snow blower is in there.

More drifts block the wood shed.

Half of the snow fence has been gobbled up by the snow. But, hey, it looks like it’s doing its job.

See that dark spot in the middle of the photo? That’s where the LP tank is.

Outside’s the rain, the driving snow, I can hear the wild wind blowing

Here’s half the snow fence. The other half to come … before the snow, I hope.

I’m having a few, and I’m wishing summer were here

October 12, 2009 | Iowa,Winter

Because it snowed this morning, my son said, “Today is the first day of winter!”

Yes [*glower*], it SNOWED this morning. Although, the first snow was two days ago. A record. Or something.

I replied, “Well, no, actually, the first day of winter isn’t scheduled for a while yet. It’s still technically fall.” And I tried not to think about how long this winter will be if it actually starts today. Because it’s not like spring will come in February to compensate.


This is what they looked like just three days ago.

Dear Florida,

I’m sorry I left you. I miss you. I need you. I want you back.
