I hope Phil is right. 17 degrees total snow 16.7″. Tonight the temp is to plummet to -10. Drifting was bad. On the way home last night at midnight. I was driving through snow drifts up to my bumper. I only made it home because I had a 4×4. And that was in town. County crews are reporting 6′ drifts out on the county roads. It was a white out last night too.

nope, not cooper.  i’m located 30 miles east of the starting point.  Red Oak.  We were an overnight town 2 years ago and that was my first experience with RAGBRAI.  After seeing it, I knew I wanted to do it, so last year was my first year with my family and it was great.  this is my 2nd year and look forward to every moment.

Tony, where are you located?

Tony is in Davenport, listening to you 2 I guess Ames got off easy, maybe 6 inches of new snow and it was 1/2 degree when I rode in this morning, windchill was -12 so not too much wind but there were a couple of gusts.

Groundhog day is also my daughter’s birthday.  She also said she did not see her shadow so I am going with an early spring.
