    Today 11/22 is "supposed" to be the average snow fall date for Iowa. At this point I'd even take some ice. At least a guy could make some cha ching!

    At last an IOWA SNOW thread!!!!!

    I say give it a week or so, Its just going to mess with us for awhile.

    But long term is calling for Above average snow fall, below average temps.

    yea, it was funny, every hack with a plow was running around town today, and only enough snow to cause buildups on curbs, maybe .02" of a dusting. but everyone hooked to their plows was funny to see, driving parking lots trying to find work. lol...

    now chance of snow on wed.!!!! cmon guys do the snow dance! ill lead!
