31 More Days

Two weeks ago, I blogged about the massive amount of snow that was dumped on us and how while I could marvel at it, I was glad there were only 46 days left until spring.

Ha! The Midwest is amazing. Two weeks after the “Blizzard of 2011,” the high was almost 60 degrees yesterday, breezy, and felt like spring. The snow is almost gone—the seven-foot tall snow pile in front of our house is down to one-foot—and I looked out my window and saw three people running in shorts! I was shaking my head, it was so funny.

I know this is just a facade. It’s February 18. In Iowa. We will see more snow (perhaps this weekend), the temperatures will dip below freezing, and I will wear my Uggs for a least another month. Instead of looking at this as a big tease, though, I’m going to thank Mother Nature for giving us a break—a nice reminder that we are 15 days closer to this weather becoming more of a permanent fixture.
