Here in central Iowa, we just caught the edge of the mammoth storm which has paralyzed the Midwest. If the wind would stop blowing, we might be able to get an accurate measurement of snowfall totals, but I'm guessing we got around six inches of the white stuff, on top of the snow we already had on the ground. It's nice to freshen things up a bit. :)
Here's a photo early in the afternoon shortly after the storm began.
A little while later, you could see it starting to accumulate.
And then the wind kicked in. I wish you could see the wind in this photo.
The wind eventually became so strong that it looked like the snow was coming down sideways. You'll just have to take my word for it.
