Last week, in this post, I was being ironic about the lack of winter in Sioux City. Now that the storm has passed, it’s probably time for a follow-up. Turns out that the storm in question was brutal. Ask any who lives along the Front Range and along I-80 well into Iowa: record breaking wet snow that caused power outages across the region.
But not here. We got a very good rain, but it stayed warm enough that the snow never came. So this winter both Omaha (to the south, for those who are geographically challenged) and Sioux Falls (to the north) have gotten their share of storms. All we’ve gotten is a bit of morning fog. Which makes for a pretty scene.
Oh yeah, and did I mention the fog made things beautiful? (That’s a finch in the tree, by the way.)
