A Tale of Two Seasons!??!

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–

Winter (300x400)An here’s an open area, not on the north side of the hill, less than a half mile away–

spring (300x400)Just a bit of a difference huh??!?!

And the best part—After this snow, everything melted and when I walked out of work tonight–You guessed it–It was snowing!

    Isn’t weather fun! We have not had the extremes that you describe, but it has been an eventful winter nonetheless. Everyone is looking forward to spring, and the opportunity to spend some time with our hands in the dirt.

    In my area of northern Illinois, we had no measurable snow in either January or February. Last night we got enough to cover the grass but it was gone quickly. The storms earlier in the week gave us heavy rainfall and, unfortunately, some damaging tornadoes.

    Where I live in Texas, we often get all four seasons in one day. Our saying is, if you don’t like the weather, just wait a few seconds!
