Just a gentle reminder of what can happen in Iowa in February. Five years ago one of our family was making a major career move that involved a cross country move. Lucky for them and the sibling that helped, the move was to the south and they were able to avoid one of the worst blizzards anyone alive can remember.

As for the rest of us, well, we got buried up to our butts in fluffy white. As if that wasn’t enough, the wind blew at about 40 miles per hours resulting in buried cars and doors blocked by snow.

In case you forgot the caucus is on Feb. 1st this year. Let us hope for cool and dry.
