Winter wonderland in Iowa... Winter 2014 chat thread

New season, new thread! We apparently got between 6-8" of snow last night. I just put up some snow fence yesterday to deal with it... Be interesting to see how the lane drifted or not since I got rid of the old hog wire that was there for several decades... I get to start the official winter with a nasty ol' cold that is really taking me down today. How's everyone doing out across the upper midwest?

Good morning Iowa, happy Christmas Eve! Just doing some quick drive-by's, to wish all of my FTE buds a happy and safe Christmas! Won't be around tomorrow, but I'll be back on Thursday. Merry Christmas, all!

Heading out to South Dakota for a few days, then it is back to work... My time off has not been doing what i wanted, but in the end, I benefit. My office area is getting split off to have a guest room now, but have an occupant for it already... A friend was nearly homeless, and as we have no spare bedroom, he has been staying in an old RV my sister has. With the blow zero temps, it hasn't been heating so well, so we have been working on getting an area enclosed, insulated and electrified. It is enclosed, partially electrified, now to get the insulation.

They have been getting snow yesterday, then are to get more tonight and tomorrow. I'm up to Huron, SD right now, so looks like I will be heading back tomorrow through Sioux City and Des Moines. I came up through Minnesota, which as is typical, quite the "treat" in the winter running 90 across southern Minnesota...
