Over a year ago I did a post about how You Might Be A Real Estate Agent... based upon Jeff Foxworthy's humorous look at life and how it may pertain to our profession.
Iowa Winters are well known for being, um, interesting to say the least! When I wrote Davenport Iowa Gets Another 2.7"!, it was my attempt at showing the rest of America another glimpse of what winter is like in Iowa.
When I wrote Iowa gets hit again...this time it's snow and ICE! and Thousands Without Power As Outages Continue in Iowa! and 7,000 without power for a week!!! it was ugly!!! Over 75,000 initially lost their power and many even lost their lives.
Even the month of April is not safe from snow when We Woke Up To A Surprise Today!
So, the 2006-2007 winter was very unusual or was it? This past winter has been nicknamed by the media as "The Winter From Hell". One nasty snowfall/ice storm after another. We keep looking for that Global Warming they are promising!!!
So! Let's have some fun with Iowa and our Winters!!!
