Cedar Rapids awoke to a light dusting of snow this morning, arriving just in time to ensure a white Christmas here in Eastern Iowa.

Now, I am as sentimental as the next person. But I’m also quite practical. So I must ask the question “who the heck uses a snowblower to remove a half inch of snow from their sidewalk or driveway”?

As early as 7:30 AM we heard at least two, perhaps three snowblowers in our neighborhood revving up their engines and ready for action.

My wife said they probably got those as Christmas gifts and couldn’t wait to try them out!

Merry Christmas everyone!
