    This weather blows..

    literally. Is it ever going to warm up in Iowa? We get one nice day followed by 2 weeks more of winter hell. Is it too much to ask for the mid 50's to 60 with a slight breeze. I can handle 40's, but not when its this windy. I swear there aren't even wind gusts, its just a constant blowing. I never really hated winter until I got to college and had to walk to and from class at least twice a day. Now I hate it. I don't even appreciate the first snowfall anymore, it just means 3-4 months of hellish walks to class or waiting for the bus. I was hoping to be golfing this coming weekend, but it looks like the weather is going to still suck then too.

    Dude, this is normal. It's always cold at the end of march/early april. Just be thankfuly if we actually have a spring this year(starting in about 3-4 weeks). Remember last year cold and rainy all the way until June, then HOT.

    Re: This weather blows..

    It was warm a week ago, this is Iowa springs for you, very pleasant for a time then pretty cold the next. Really shouldn't complain that much its still above freezing, with a bit of a different track we could have been getting the blizzard up in the Dakotas/Minnesota.

    Welcome to the real world, no more getting out of school for one or two flakes of snow.

    I've always have said that March and April are the 2 worst weather months of the year. Just when you thought we had turned the corner 2 weeks ago yesterday when it was 70something, winter comes roaring back.

    Too hot for me. If you would have said 65 and bright sunshine then I would be jealous.
