Spirit Lake, Iowa - Winter Wonderland

Last night we arrived at the lake house amid a flutter of snowflakes that were steadily getting thicker.

This morning: -39F (which, strangely, is -39.4C, too) wind chill, snowing, blowing and generally unfit for humans.  This was the visibility as we headed out of the driveway

This was some unfortunate soul who didn't realise that there was a big snowdrift blocking one whole lane. He made it surprisingly far into and high onto the drift, though! The top left & bottom right show him stuck in/on the drift while another car happily cruises by in the cleared lane.

By the time we got back to the house, the visibility had improved, the wind had dropped to 25-30mph and the snow was slacking off. So glad I don't have to deal with snow drifts blocking my doors back in Exmouth!
