3 reasons why I hate Iowa weather and one reason I kind of love it

  1. Wind — gale force wind every other day (especially on garbage pickup day)
  2. Rain — like every other day after the gale force wind and sometimes even with gale force wind (that's its own kind of special)
  3. Snow and ice from anytime beginning September through May (or whenever you have travel plans)
  4. It's never boring because some days you start out wearing a winter coat and end up wearing shorts and sandals. (Iowa, The Bipolar State)
