    Iowa is awesome right now

    For those of you who haven't been out to the country side lately, I highly suggest you take a drive today on some county roads. Between the weather, the trees, the crops and harvest, its a great time to live in this state.

    Re: Iowa is awesome right now

    I agree 100%. People who don't live in Iowa have no idea how beautiful this state can be. Get off I-80 and I-35 and get out into the country. I love the golden sunshine during autumn. Plus it will help get the mind off the football teams!

    I noticed this on Friday. Can't go wrong with Iowa in October.

    Re: Iowa is awesome right now

    Can't go wrong with harvest season. There is just something about combines rolling in the fields. Call me crazy but it needs to be a little cooler I love the fall when I can be comfortable in a sweatshirt and jeans. It feels strange to me again this year like last fall that we are in to corn harvest in t-shirts.

    October is my favorite month of the year.

    Can't beat walking around campus this time of year.

    Re: Iowa is awesome right now

    Drove to and from Iowa City yesterday... I have to agree. The trees are full of color, many of the crops have yet to be harvested... it was all very beautiful.

    The only thing I don't like about this time of year is the harvest. Drives my allergies nuts.

    Re: Iowa is awesome right now

    I loved living in Iowa, but this was always one of the most miserable times of year for me, especially in terms of season allergies. I've never tested asthmatic, but I would be sucking on an Albuterol inhaler at least 3 times a day just to get my lungs to cough up phlegm, not ache, and allow them to breathe. Not to mention the sneezing, the constant runny nose and sinus pressure, watery and itchy eyes, and itchy throat.

    I don't deny that Iowa is beautiful - I loved this time of year there. But Michigan is just as beautiful this time of year and we're two months into my prime allergy season and I haven't had to hit my inhaler once during this time. I miss a lot about Iowa, but that is one thing I certainly don't miss.

    Absolutely. This is a little to warm for me. Fall is supposed to be sweatshirt weather.

    We haven't had rain here in weeks, and it is so dry right now, people who do not normally have fall allergies are starting to develop them, including myself.

    Agreed. Suppose to be a high of 78 tomorrow, October 10th. I would like to see a high of around 68 this time of year.
