Here in the greater metropolitan area of Boone, Iowa we got somewhat of a blizzard starting last Saturday night and going into Sunday. While in Boone we didn’t get a ton of snow, we did get a ton of wind.
On Saturday afternoon I went to watch the Iowa State women’s basketball team play the #1 Baylor Bears with my Mom. While the Cyclones gave it a valiant effort, they fell short. There is a reason why Baylor is the #1 team in the country… that reason is size. You can’t coach size and it is really hard to defend. But Iowa State gave it a great try and heading into their Tuesday evening game with the Texas Longhorns, they are currently tied for 2nd… with Texas. If they win that game, they have a really good shot to finish 2nd in the Big 12 by their lonesome. They will have only 1 game remaining. A home tilt with the lowly Kansas Jayhawks.
We went back to Boone immediately following the game and dined at The Colorado Grill. By the time we left The Colorado Grill it was snowing heavily. I spent the rest of Saturday night at home watching college basketball and working on my current organizational products.
When I awoke to take on the world Sunday morning, church had been cancelled. While there wasn’t much new snow, the wind had drifted it across my driveway in at least 2 foot drifts.
There is a company that comes to plow out my driveway, so I hung in my house, made some Jack’s pizza, watched a ton of Netflix, and waited to be plowed out.
Since I was stuck at home, I did go out to the back yard to photograph some of the results of the snowstorm:
The plow guy didn’t show up until after 8 AM on Monday morning. I was 2 hours late for work. US30 was a sheet of ice. I’m really starting to miss warm weather. I’m the type of person that normally doesn’t care… but this winter has been a bit much.
