A post from Kelli–
I know that we have readers from around the world, so I’ll give you a quick update on the lovely winter here in Iowa–IT’S BEEN CRAZY!
We’ve had a few ice storms, a couple snow storms, warm days and all three rolled into one in quick succession. Last week we had a day where it was over 70 degrees and the next day it was snowing. I have no idea how that all works out, but around here, they always joke that if you don’t like the weather, wait a day and you’ll probably get what you want–And it’s true!
Where I live, there are tons of hills! I always joke that there isn’t more than a quarter mile of straight road anywhere near where I live. While that’s a bit of an exaggeration, it’s not too far off. From a few miles away, you can see what looks like 4 or 5 different gravel roads, however, it’s actually just the same road twisting and curving around the hills.
Because there’s so many hills, you have to pay attention to what side of the hills you are on so that you can anticipate what the roads might be like.
**Please know that I was stopped in my vehicle when I took the following pictures.**
Here’s the north side of the hill–
And the best part—After this snow, everything melted and when I walked out of work tonight–You guessed it–It was snowing!
