The Frozen Tundra of Iowa

Mom and Dad got called home to Iowa due to family emergency. We were upset at first cause we didn't get to go, but mom sent us a couple pictures and all we can think of is.. "Dang, it's cold in Iowa!!"

Mom told us it's been snowing everyday since they got there, bet the car isn't happy! For Texans like Mom and Dad it's strange having to deal with snow and ice. She has commented on how cold, icey and snowy it's been, but we think she's having a good time anyway!

She wanted us to blog this picture of the Surf Ballroom and see how many people have heard of it. She grew up in the area and went to many dances at the Surf. She said a great time was had by all, guess we'll have to take her word for it.

She said it anyone knows the history of the Surf she will blog another picture of the monument from the plane crash..ok, do we get a hint to what she is talking about?? She said it has to do with Buddy Holly, who the heck is he? The Big Bopper, is that a toy??? And finally Richie Vallence.. we aren't even going to take a guess on that one.

So, we have had a little free blogging time, that's cause mom and dad are so far away. They are heading home tomorrow, oh they better be bringing us a good treat!!! Posted by Picasa

Hey,
Our Mama knows where that is. Your Mama & Papa drove just west of us on their way up there! Yep, Buddy Holly. He was a good singer. We had some more snow yesterday and more coming today. Bet your Mama isn't happy about that. Hope your family is ok & that your Mama & Papa get home safely to you soon!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Hi Joe! It's actually Richie Valens, mom corrected us. We thought the same thing, curtains. haha.

Hey Butchy&Snickers, it's cold in Iowa! Mom sent more pictures and it's too cold for us. They are on their way home, but the weather is horrible she said. It's snow and ice all the way to Oklahoma, but they are driving safe. They better, we want our treat!

Mom and Dad made it home today!! Mom is taking the day off to get things "caught up"..we hope that means lots of loving for us.

Hey Wally, where at in Iowa? Mom's family tends to favor ISU..go cyclones, we guess.

Copper, the high was -27 windchill for them..good, since we had to stay home it's good they froze! hehe

fufu..they are home and warm now. Mom said it was fun to be in the snow and cold, it's been 9 years since she has "played" in Iowa snow. And she thinks that is fun??? Sick mommy.

Wow that's really beautiful snow... but it does look really cold! It's over 90 degrees here in Los Angeles, and since I've never seen snow I can't relate!

Love,
