Say it isn’t snow!

imga0285snow.jpgWas it just a bad dream or was this really what we saw falling from the sky last night?

Go ahead, friends in sunny Arizona and balmy California, I give you full permission to gloat. Those of us in Iowa can still look on the bright side after our latest bashing of snow:

1) It’s March, not May. Let Mother Nature get this out of her system, before we get used to 70 degrees and sun. (Please, please don’t let this jinx us in May.)

2) We’re only inches away from setting a snowfall record. After the winter we’ve experienced, don’t we deserve the “I survived the snowiest winter EVER” bragging rights?

3) Drought, shmought.

4) More time for indoor spring cleaning.

5) It will all be gone by tomorrow, right?

6-10) Ok. You come up with the rest. I’m not that much of an optimist.

But just remember, those of you in warm locales, when winter weather finally does retreat in Iowa, you’ll be longing for those picture-perfect, glorious months, or weeks, or at this point, let’s at least hope for a few days of spring in Iowa.
