OT: Snow Shuts Down Des Moines Area



1637358807_ORIG.jpeg
 This is a view from my driveway in the Des Moines area. We received 15 inches of snow and wind gusts up to 50 MPH all day today. Schools, malls, banks, just about everything closed. The drift that went across my driveway was four feet high. Snowplows did not come through until late this afternoon. Main streets are open but side streets are one lane if lucky. The snow was deeper than most snowblowers so the dig out was time consuming.  Most schools in the metro area have announced closings for tomorrow too. It's just plain ugly. I know what you're thinking.... better you than me and yes, I would not wish this on any of you.

I was able to read all the posts on the lack of the Bradley trade today, sandwiched around blowing snow. If you live outside of the snow area, you should feel lucky. This one set some December snow records in Iowa.

While we Iowan's are stuck inside today, let's get Bradely moved so we can get on with the off season. We're dreaming of next summer with Ryne Sandberg and the Iowa Cubs, we don't have anything else to do in Iowa for the next few days!
