    8-12" in central Iowa in my areas. More snow forecasted for this week, but highs above 32 in the 10 day forecast. The end is in sight!

    Iowa Coty area has patches of bare ground on some S facing slopes but fields and timber are still heavy with snow/ice layers. Its miserable to walk around.

    Was southeast of dsm today. Open fields starting to melt with bare spots. In timber- 4” I’d say. As of TODAY - not even close to ideal shed hunting. Could change really fast with weather but still a good bit in timber & snow drifts. In Des Moines- pure snow cover in fields & timber both. Not even close. ;)

    After the rain over the past 12 hours, most snow is gone at my farm in SE Iowa. Still some in shady spots like in the timber, but fields are 95+% open. Dare I say, it is flooding around here! :)
