The weather is absolute crap this weekend. When I moved to Iowa I was looking forward to some snow and cold, but why does it always snow on the weekends? This weekend we’re getting everything: ice, snow, sleet, and… lightning? I can’t remember ever seeing lightning during a snowstorm. It lights the sky up like Timex Indiglo.
Most of today was freezing rain–there was as much as a quarter-inch on everything–but now it’s snowing. I’ve been indoors and fortunate not to have lost power here at my apartment. I went to Susan’s this evening; they lost power a couple of times. Coming back the road were pretty bad: heavy wet snow over slush. I almost didn’t make it up the hill by City High. On the third try I backed halfway up the opposite hill and muscled my way over the crest.
