The first thing I did when I walked out of my house this morning at 4:45am to come to work was take a picture of my backyard, covered in snow, and upload it to Facebook.
When I got to the office and logged onto Facebook, EVERY single status in my newsfeed said something to the effect of "it was 80 just 2 days ago and now snow!". As Iowans, we have all come to expect a certain level of weather change day-to-day, but even this 2 day swing was a bit much for everyone it appears.
Saturday in the 80's, yesterday thunderstorms all day, and today we wake up to snow on the ground. I even saw a funny picture of someone who had their kiddie pool out for their kids on Saturday, and was covered in snow today.
You always hear people say "only in Iowa" when it comes to our weather changes, but a 50 degree swing in 48 hours definitely takes the cake!
