Yesterday, in Iowa, during January, we hit 50ish degrees.
Almost balmy, I tell ya.
Today I breezed out of the house without my coat because it was 50 yesterday.
Today is a different story, try minus nine wind chill, actual temp two degrees.
We did have a fifty - something -- fifty mile an hour winds delivering flash frozen snowflakes.
You know I'm a fan of flakes. But I've decided I prefer mine when I'm hunkered down in the cozy couch with my hands wrapped around a warm mug of coffee or tea. Up close and personal pelting, also know as snowblasting, kind of takes the awe and excitement out of snowflakes.
