Proving Des Moines is NOT boring

Thanks Snow, we needed that

Yesterday’s snow storm brought some frustration, except for those who found benefit in their snow day.  After last year’s free pass on winter, when we could go running in shorts through January & February, we probably had this coming.  For the people who say on weeks like this “I can’t wait to move to Florida” (like they do almost every year at this time), I’d ask them in return.. what’s stopping you?.

My top 3 favorite things about this week’s snow storm:

1) It was not a hurricane.

2) It got everyone super pumped (or frantic).

3) It just ensured we’ll have a white Christmas.

Best wishes to all those waiting on power to come back, who are stranded in airports, on highways, or who are working the storm (like the UPS Man who somehow dropped off deliveries on time yesterday).  Once this clears, let’s all drive safe and enjoy some fresh snow for the holiday week.
