Iowa winter math

30 degrees + no wind = SUMMER!

Yesterday was a lovely, sunny day in my part of Iowa.  I put on the snow boots, snow pants, insulated coat, gloves, and wooly hat.  I grabbed the Trio and we set off for a long walk.  By the time I was a few steps away from the house, I realized that I was too warm.  I walked back and dropped off the hat and gloves.

Two blocks away, I walked by a neighbor who was outside shaking out his floor mats.  Wearing jeans and a t-shirt.  We smiled at each other and he said to me, "just like summer, isn't it?"  My answer was, "It really is, I didn't even need my wooly hat and gloves!"

Then I started to think.  When does 30 degrees start to feel balmy?

After weeks of snow and temps that didn't reach the legal drinking age.

Perching on the table isn't quite as much fun in the winter...

Our "summer" was short - we've had 8" of snow so far today...
