Siouxland Spring snow storm, Sioux City

11 Apr

After a winter in Siouxland, people really start looking forward to Spring. Warmer temperatures, no snow to shovel, lighter jackets or sweaters and no falling down on slick sidewalks. But if Spring is slow to come and show up, even the best grin and bear it types start getting restless and grumpy, even through normally in Spring, snow does not last very long. This year however this particular snow storm arrived earlier this week. Monday’s temperature was near 70 degrees, but then Tuesday brought rain, sleet, freezing rain, hail, snow thunder, lightning and finally Wednesday evening, snow. It is all very pretty, but some sunshine, warmer temperatures and hearing robins sing in the morning might be nice. The robins I saw kept flittering around looking for a dry place and a little warmth. More rain is forecast in several days which is nice, but the temperatures are still hovering in the 40’s which could easily bring more snow yet this Spring.
