As you all know, Iowa is no stranger to wacky spring weather.
- Example A, 2009: Three-inches of snow fall in early April as I leave for a business trip to Chicago.
- Example B, 2011: Severe tornado-producing storms on just the second full day of spring force the Hardinge’s and Florer’s to seek shelter in a bathroom.
Oh, and I’m sure we had radical weather last spring as well, but…uh…we were too busy preparing for that whole “arrival-of-the-Hardinge-Triplets” thing to document it. Nonetheless, mother nature had one last (and wholly unanticipated, at least by us) parting shot at central Iowa as the calendar turned from March to April.
Now, I know what you’re thinking… “not another weather post.” Don’t worry, I’ll keep it short and sweet. I just wanted to show off a couple cool pics I snapped in the early morning calm as I left for work last week.
Fortunately, the two-and-a-half inches of snow didn’t stick around long, and all was melted away by the time I returned home that evening. Hopefully that’s the last we see of the cold wet stuff until next winter. As history has shown, one can never be too sure…but at least the forecast for next week looks promising!
And now, since you’ve so patiently put up with my frivolous weather ramblings, here’s a cute snapshot to tide you over until next post:
More to come soon!
