Christmas in Iowa (Ice isn't always bad)

The week before Christmas the forecast wasn't too bad. Looked like we were supposed to get some snow, which was great news because this year I was able to get my son another snowboard since his last one was lost during the flood of 08. As it got closer to Christmas the forecast changed to ice and freezing rain for the big day, and warmer temperatures and the rain melted a lot of the snow. We were hosting Christmas at our house and because of the roads only half of the family was able to make it, however my son, who loved his snowboard although he didnt get to use it right away, found other ways to enjoy the icy weather. This video is my mother and mother in law and my son showing you that sometimes, ice isn't always so bad.
