Pretty much out of room to put snow now...and Shelf of the Day #5

Well, this last little system has dumped somewhere around another 8" of snow here since Sunday. Snowpack is getting pretty impressive. Good thing this stuff was pretty dry as the attention starts shifting towards the liquid equivalent and spring flooding potential. March is always the deal breaker up here when it comes to where the rivers will crest so time to wait and see.


To give you an idea, my daughter is an inch short of 4'.

On to Shelf #5. Calling it the "shelf of the day" really doesn't fit since I'm sure you have noticed I have not been posting daily. My goal was to get one in per day until the official start of the 2010 severe weather season March 1.


Hailing (not "hailing") from Iowa on May 6th, 2008 came this cool shelf over Forest City (I think...Jayson P, if you read this, please correct me if you can tell). My daughter, Cailyn, and I had a lot of fun playing with this as it headed east. We have another pic of this shelf with the dead end sign with a cemetery also but I thought it drew too much attention away from the shelf LOL.

Thanks for the shout to test my geographical skills. This day I was well south around Ames due to limits of college classes: Chase Report 5/6/08

But, the best shelf was up there in north-central Iowa and you picked a town name that could at least be correct.. haha.

Enjoy the snow! I left Iowa at the start of the year and am now in Kansas City enjoying our 2" that is on the ground now.
