Let’s Talk Weather

Okay, let’s talk weather.  I live in Iowa which for the beginning of January we normally have snow and it is in the single digits.  This year, nope.  We have no snow and we reached an all time high today.  It got to 64° today.  Yep, you read that correctly.  Hello it is feeling like spring.  Florida is worried about frost and we are breaking out the short sleeves.  Got to love it.

Now onto something else.  I was sent this e-mail today and I thought I would pass it along.  Hope you enjoy.
