Interesting. We had about 24"+ in our front yard.
Yes I recall seeing that! It was very hit and miss last season
Not much at least for cover up to Sioux city and Sioux falls and west to Missouri river in SD
My uncle near Columbia MO had 2 big falls like central Iowa did and snowed his rural town in the plows couldn't make it to him

The in-laws, just 1 hour drive NW of us, had about 1-2 inch of cover.

Last winter's snow was weird. Although, the insane temperature and windchill made up the shortfall.

You should wait a few months. Then we'll have ice and snow pack on the "trails".......and more potholes. ;)
Iowa hwy 9 is still on the bucket list
That might be a good winter adventure and its a long one o_O

recapping the past years taco trails + adventures... That was supposed to be a 'focus on tiger trails' that turned out otherwise :rolleyes:
