Our First Real Snow Storm This Winter

Looks like Des Moines is going to get hit by our first real snow storm of this winter season.  We had a light snow for Christmas - just enough to make it white and then it melted by the new year.  But right now we are on the front edge of a slow moving storm that is predicted to dump up to 6 inches of snow on my driveway.

I think Stan here has the right idea.  Actually I have already been out once this morning and blew off the driveway and sidewalks.  It really wasn't much and I expect that I will be out at least once more if not twice before this is done.  Thankfully I have the next three days off, so I can stay home and enjoy an Iowa winter storm.  The Rev went off to the church this morning.  I asked her to keep an eye on the weather so she doesn't get caught there.  She has meetings scheduled tonight so we will see what actually happens.

This is far better than the record snows of last winter.  I'm hoping it stays that way.

I pray your winter weather is mild and your homes warm.  But most of all, as always, I pray for peace.
