What a surprise for those of us in central Iowa! We knew SE Iowa was supposed to get hit with a snow storm today, but we were expecting an inch here in the Des Moines metro area! Mother Nature decided to shift the storm a little to the north and now we're expecting more in the 4 inch range! It hit Des Moines around 7AM and Jeriann Ritter said to expect it to last about four hours. With normal business traffic, the girl's state basketball tourney in town and the home schoolers conference at the capitol, it made for a lot of extra people coming in during the morning drive with a lot of slick streets....what a mess!
Thank you to all of you whoo called in accidents, stopped traffic, etc. and to those of you who texted us as well. You are our eyes out in the thick of things!
Hopefully your drive in tomorrow will be a little more quiet.
