    We are getting heavy ice build up today. over 1/2 and counting. My scanner has calls for power lines down all over Eastern Iowa. Plus it looks like we could get heavy snow tonight and Sunday, 6 -12".

    I certainly don't envy you guys. I hate dealing with ice, much less trying to plow the snow that's on top of it. Good luck.

    It actually hasn't been too bad so far... the air temp is staying right around 32 so I have been a slush pusher all evening... the biggest problem that I have had is all the traffic routed thru town here because they shut down I-80 due to downed High-Tension wires......stupid truckers.....outta my way I'm tryin to work here!!!

    Oh well....accuweather says 1-3 for snow but is calling for 34-38 degree temps.
    Tomorrow is gonna be some heavy pushin....payup

    Was not the truckers fault, Power lines were hanging low due to the ice and a truck run into it the plower lines. I think the power lines should have been under ground!

    Coralville/ North Liberty was without power since about 4 Pm last night. Just came back on.

    the ice makes for beautiful pictures and scenery but it is one heck of a destructive beauty

    I never said that it was the Truckers their fault....just that they were in the way....

    Was a truck the cause of the outage in north liberty????

    The High tension wires that were down over here were between the Wilton & Durant exits.... I was told that I-80 was shut down from West Branch to Walcott because of it....
