Today eastern Iowa was hit by a day long ice storm that is turning to snow and may dump 6-12 inches by the end of the day tomorrow. Power has been out for much of the community since late afternoon.

My only concern now is that I can get up and in for services in the morning without getting stuck or crashing somewhere! Here's a few pics from my back yard.
