This was in our local paper yesterday and I thought it was appropriate to share since I’m in a major winter BLAH phase.

10 reasons to appreciate the cold Iowa winter

Here are 10 things to ponder as you shiver through another day in Iowa’s Endless Winter:

  1. The good news – no mosquitoes!
  2. If you can still see your breath, you haven’t frozen to death.
  3. It has never snowed in Iowa in June. That’s only a little more than three months away.
  4. You can probably get a good deal on an air conditioner.
  5. Nobody cares how funny you look while tiptoeing on an ice-glazed sidewalk, because they are too worried about falling themselves. And big, furry, hairstyle-destroying hats are fashionable.
  6. Ice fills the potholes.
  7. If the electricity goes out, your frozen foods will likely remain frozen.
  8. Scraping an ice-covered windshield makes you feel superior to all those people who wimped out and built garages.
  9. The Iowa Cubs home opener is April 3, a mere 41 days away.
  10. What? You’d rather be mowing?

Spring, please come soon!!

    LOL!!! I TOTALLY love #8! Ever since I can remember I have not been able to park in a garage. And now our van is too big for our garage (which is packed out with tons of stuff, anyways)…

    Thanks for the good laugh:)
