Got up to around 50*f & sunny here today in east central Iowa !
Spent some quality time outside this afternoon,, & even went & washed the car !
''Thank you Jesus'' !
Am guessing around 1/3 of the snow has already melted, since yesterday.
Almost feels like spring,, just won't look like it on the ground for quite awhile yet .....
Figure it will probably take at least 2 weeks for most of it to melt,, ''if we can stay above 30*f ''.
We are ''definitely'' - ''unfortunately'' in for some flooding this spring/summer ''again'' though ...……
You Guys might remember the flood of 08' here in Cedar Rapids ??
That was really F-ed up,, & I hope the levy & flood walls they put up after it,, will keep that from happening again.
Money the government gave the city to do that,, they didn't use all of it for that purpose though,, & spent ''a lot'' of it on ''stupid'' stuff that we didn't need,, like goofy statues ect ect …
It still pisses me off ! ''Idiots''!!
''All dollars & no sense''.
Yeah, 52⁰F was the high here in Lincoln l, NE today. Mass majority of the snow from the large snow storm a month ago is mostly gone. I can see grass. Going to miss the snow. Was definitely a year for snowmobiling.
Sleds aren't that common here. I saw maybe 2 this winter around here. But saw many on sled decks and trailers, probably all heading to Colorado or other parts of the Midwest. That's the one of a few things I miss about Minnesota...the many many miles of snowmobile trails.
Ok scratch that.
Last night it was 73 while we went to go mini golfing, then I wake up this morning and have to put on a sweater because it’s in the 40s this morning!!
That’s a 30 degree temperature swing in about 12 hours!!!
