Clearing the driveway

January 7, 2010 | 2010,Iowa,Weather,Winter

I had to wait until I could feel my feet again before I posted this. We cleared the driveway, which I’m sure we’ll have to do again in the morning.

We even had to clear part of the highway. I don’t think the snowplows were out today, and I saw they weren’t being sent out tonight. That means the whole highway might be closed tomorrow.

The mail carrier surprised me. He actually tackled a good 2 feet of snow and a huge drift in front of our mailbox to deliver our mail. Thanks, Jerry!

We have lots more digging out in our future. And I hope the LP gas lasts throughout the winter because I don’t think we’ll see the tank until spring. It’s buried under a good 5 feet of snow drift.

And if this were a horror movie? This would be the point when the scary voice would whisper-shout, “Get out!”

How many blizzards can Iowa have in one winter?


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

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeelp meeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Drinking in the New Year over at Ilina’s

January 1, 2010 | 2010,BlogHer,Holidays,Norway

I got to meet Ilina in Chicago last summer. She’s always cooking up something tasty and tempting, and she celebrates 5:00 every Friday with a cocktail. And guess what? She let me kick off the new year with a guest post. Thanks, Ilina! Raising my glass and wishing you a happy New Year!
