We have a saying in Iowa: If you don't like the weather....wait 5 minutes! I have always chuckled at that because we do have some pretty crazy weather. However, this past Sunday proved that this 'saying' is no longer a 'saying'....it should be our state slogan.
While going to church Sunday morning at 9:30am it was 65 degrees outside. The sun was peeking through the clouds and there was a familiar warmness that screamed SPRING!
After choir practice at 2:30pm the temperature had dropped to about 45 degrees and there was a very chilly wind that screamed WINTER...NOOOOOO! (OK...maybe that was me screaming).
At home, around 5:30pm, there was a flash of light and thunderous boom that was reminiscent of a nice little movie called Twister. Then the skies opened up and the rain began. I had to stop and think...is it March or August?
At small group, around 8:00pm, the rain had stopped and it began to snow! Yes! Snow! Not just flurries, but some of the biggest flakes I have ever seen! Definitely March...NOT August!
I have never used our 'state slogan' before. I guess I am trying to hold on to the last little bit of city girl left in me, but after Sunday.....I'm namin' it and claimin' it! I can't wait to run into a 'foreigner' that is complaining about our weather:)
