Wet Sloppy Snow
Allison and Emanuel made it back to Ames safely, although it did take them a little longer then planned. They left around noon and it was just raining lightly, but 1/2 an hour into the trip they started seeing wet, sloppy, slippery snow. They saw cars in the ditch, and had limited visibility. Thankfully, they slowed down, at times to 25mph and kept on the road. So many of our snow storms both this year and last seemed to come over the weekend. Hopefully the weather will be nicer next weekend when all the kids are headed out for spring break.
This is a photo from this afternoon, the snowflakes were huge and the picture doesn't do it justice, it was an impressive snowfall. (only about an inch total)
