This is not Iowa... I do not remember a time in my lifetime when there has been NO SNOW in Iowa during the month of December. No snow at Thanksgiving - that's normal. No snow for Christmas - it happens. But, no snow at all - now that's rare. We've had rain this month, but no snow. Some might say that this is evidence of "global warming" - I don't know about that - a quick check of the weather records show that the last time we had a winter start like this was in 1889 (not that I recall that however).
It was almost 50 degrees yesterday - will I ever get to use my snowblower?
