It is Spring! Not.

The temperature in our part of the world is warming up. In fact last week, there’s a couple of days that it felt like summer as we topped 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The leaves and flower buds are appearing. The grass has turned green and growing. Many of our neighbors have already started mowing their lawn. But not us, we’re not that anxious to start mowing.

Just as you thought spring has fully sprung, then we are hit with this……..

Mid-April snow!

The snow did not stopped me from going out for my morning run. It is after all a balmy 32 degree Fahrenheit (0º Celsius), and the ground is not slippery nor icy.

This lonely goose does not seem to mind the snow as well.

This is crazy Iowa weather. People who grew up here told us when we moved here, “if you don’t like the weather, just wait several minutes, it will change.”

Post Note: Below is what the first photo looked like in the afternoon of that same day with all the snow gone. Crazy weather indeed!

  1. Crazy…is it a Midwest thing? I was in Branson, Missouri two years ago, for five days, and there were rain days, sweltering sunny days and hail on my last day!

    • Because the midwest is so far from the ocean or big body of water, there’s nothing to temperate the extreme swing of temperatures. By the way that mid-April snow that we had, by noon all the snow have melted and disappeared, and it was nice and comfortable by afternoon.
