Spring for a day

2-18-11 happy brain
Yesterday, the temperatures around Iowa set some new records.... the good kind- it was well above normal temps! I don't know the official high, but I recorded it as 68 degrees on FEB 17th in Des Moines, as I was driving back into town from being in Iowa City for a day and a half. Iowa City was also warm.

It did really feel like spring in the air.. of course that can't last and we may be in for some snow again on Monday. But for now, all the snow has melted in the yard, and we are left with the wonderful mud of spring.... HEY, I'll take it!


  1. Judy, my backyard is a sea of mud, but at least I can now see the ground after almost two months of not being able to. My front yard looks like a lake. Believe it or not, after 4 or 5 days of melting temps, I still have snow in the shady areas, and my driveway isn't completely uncovered either. It probably will be just in time for the snow we may get on Tuesday. Sigh.

  2. Kansas City was 74F yesterday, exceeding the previous record of 72F. How much change a week makes!
