4 Seasons, 1 Day

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:)

You are so right about the crazy weather. We went to church with no jackets and then the older two went to an indoor water park and when they came home it was snowing and they were freezing. So I guess I better start checking the weather report from now on.
