There is nothing quite like waking up to -20º weather. I am well aware that people to the north are used to worse temperatures, yet I am an Iowan and therefore I complain about the extreme seasons of winter and summer every year. I realized last year that spring is highly overrated; only May offers a nice month devoid of windy cold days and too much rain. If we are lucky March provides a nice warm surprise that happens not enough or hardly at all.
Well at least there is the pleasantries of fall and summer is bearable at times. Perhaps if I migrate to a hotter climate I will complain and whine about the humidity and the heat. Even if currently I am longing for warmth amongst this bitter January frost.
