This has been an unusually mild winter for Iowa. January saw a number of days with highs in the 50 degree F range. We have had a little bit of snow, but not much.
Today it snowed. It snowed a lot, but the snow is light and is not blowing around. The temperatures are around freezing so it is actually quite pleasant.
Here is a snow-covered bird-bath.
