My street has yet to be plowed, and I'm going to make an attempt to go to work shortly. This could be bad.

Damn, that's real bad. I got stuck about 30 feet from my driveway. I guess Monte Carlos arent made for this weather.
Sounds like some idiots in Cedar Rapids were reporting the lightning last night as UFOs.
Article from KCRG: CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -- Eastern Iowa's blizzard conditions are making for hazardous travel -- and maybe even for unknown objects in the sky.
A resident on Cedar Rapids' east side reported alternating blue and green lights lighting "the entire horizon" early Thursday, according to Peter Davenport, director of the National UFO Reporting Center in Harrington, Wash.
Davenport said the witness filed a report on his group's website after the incident about 3:15 a.m. He said he hoped to reach the witness, who didn't identify himself but left his contact information, for a followup interview.
"He describes it at great length," Davenport said. "He sounds like a credible witness. It was intriguing enough to me I thought it worth following up on."
Davenport said the witness' description of viewing bright lights for 20 minutes leads him to believe he wasn't describing lightning or an exploding powerline transformer.
Cedar Rapids police logs don't list any calls reporting a UFO sighting this morning.
Davenport invited anyone who may have seen the incident to call his group's hotline: 206-722-3000.
The witness' initial report:
Duration: 20 minutes
Sighting City: Cedar Rapids
Sighting State: ia
Sighting Zip: 52403
Sighting County: Linn
Description: Astonishing Sound and Changing Lights Seen North Of Cedar rapids, Iowa on December 20th 3:15 A.M.
Description: Awakened by loud hum. Hum lasted about 5 seconds. Hum immediately followed by a blue light which lit the entire horizon this light then immediately followed by a green light which also lit the entire horizon. Lights were NOT a flash radiating outward but were almost like enormous bars of light (horizon to horizon) radiating upward toward the heavens. This process was repeated at least 5 times and, we believe more as we heard it and could see our room lit from without before rising to look out the window - we personally witnessed at least 5 cycles.

Bwahahaha sounds like someone from Davenport
My friends dad is an electrician here in CR and he posted this earlier today:
"It wasn't a ufo, it's a high voltage reclosure within the power lines that happens all the time"

Well I was drunk last night and thought I saw a UFO so I called it in. I didn't want to but that damn pink elephant in my living room made me.
Were you doing acid again?
How we looking up yonder? How much did you guys get?
We only ended up getting about 6.5-7 inches in Hiawatha but the winds have been really strong. My dad, he lives over a little north of Des Moines in a small town, said he measured 13.5 on his deck. So it sounds like the worst of it hit the mid part of the Iowa.
Seems like we should drink because of that.
I'm about to have my buddy pick me up and we're gonna get some wings. And beer of course.
