    The Worst Winter In Iowa


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Sixteen-year-old Rositamepo says this is worst winter she has experienced in her hometown of Mediapolis, Iowa. She says the snow just kept falling Saturday evening, January 4. Her family was expecting one to three inches of snow, but instead they got more than six inches in a few hours last night. 'We had to go out to shovel the snow every hour," she said. 'This is the worst winter, not so much because of the snow, but the temperatures are so cold,' she said.

    Southeast Iowa has almost seven to eight inches on the ground today, and six of those inches came unpredictably last night. The snow is light and fluffy and the wind is predicted to pick up and blow. We have wind chill warnings and winter weather advisories as well. This picture is of the streetlight last night as the snow showered down, and the other one is of a relative leaving early due to the hazardous weather, and my father and brother scooping snow. Wind chills tomorrow for our area and supposed to be -45!
