Siouxland’s Warmer Weather, Sioux City

29 Jan

The winter so far in Siouxland has been cold, but it also has been warmer a number of days as well. And that is fine by me. I don’t mind snow, but the biting cold with added wind chill effect can be downright tough on a person. But these warmer days  bring a different kind of winter beauty and dilemma. There may be less snow to shovel, but the rain turns to ice when the temperature hits the freezing mark. And ice is not a great thing to drive on.

However, if one is fortunate and doesn’t have to go out, the beauty of the ice once the sun comes out can be breathtaking. And luckily here in the Siouxland area there wasn’t the devastation that came with the ice storm that states further south incurred. So am counting blessings and enjoying this different view of winter the area has had so far.
