Not Quite Spring, but closer, Sioux City

10 Mar

It’s early March, and this past week the temperatures hit the 40 degree mark, which was very nice. Nothing stokes the Spring Fever more than “warmish” days. Even though it’s been a good winter in Siouxland this year, temps not below zero for days at a time as it has in the past, those early warm days makes one yearn for more. But Mother Nature decided Old Man Winter needed to visit the Midwest one more time. And one wonders if the little rodent, Punxsutawney Phil, made a bad prediction this year.

But the weather people say the temperatures should be hitting the high 40’s, maybe even 50 degrees by the end of this week. The nice part of this time of year is that the snow may not last long. Although I could think of better ways to get a cardio workout in during the day.

Siouxland weather again, is Spring here yet? Sioux City

25 Feb

Recently the Siouxland area got a nice snowfall, 10 inches. And while to some that is 10 inches too much, for others, it was a pleasant diversion to an almost snowless winter. I personally like to snow shoe, and this past snowfall was light, powdery and excellent snow to venture out into. And I did that over the weekend at Stone State Park. I was hoping for more snowfall this week, but it looks like this coming snow storm that is hitting the Plains states, will miss us here in Northwest Iowa, while giving Des Moines and points south a little more snow. And while the weather this winter doesn’t seem a bit off anyway, this past weekend it was also very foggy. The nice temps gives one an early taste of Spring Fever, and that is welcomed too. I just hope it brings a few showers for those later flowers and not leave the area high and dry.
