The Weather Rollercoaster

OK~ I reside in North Iowa and like many other parts of the country, we are on a weather roller coaster. July was very, very dry.  We had brown, crunchy grass everywhere in the midst of several heat advisories. What's so ironic about that? Well, according to the calendar we are now in January. January is in the midst of Winter. Winter is supposed to be cold, snowy, and icy. Well, we have had the cold, we have had the snow, and we have had the ice. Yesterday everything was covered in a sheet of ice. Today this is what we have!

Our firewood is really greening up today, and all of this green grass is amazing! Our lawn looks more like it needs to be mowed now, than it did last Summer. I know I have a 17 year old son that was glad to see wet roads this morning, as opposed to icy road conditions.

Yes, that is standing water near the tractor, and a lot of it! In the bean field in the background, there is a pile of snow. Today it is near 38 degrees outside, and tomorrow evening; below zero! With a little bit of snow in the forecast and a very windy day on tap for tomorrow, things will change in a matter of hours.

For now, we are enjoying the green. Are you enjoying the weather roller coaster where you are? If so, I'd love to hear how you are coping! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
