Des Moines is too damned cold! I just looked at the forecast for the weekend and Thursday’s high is 38 with a chance of flurries! Brrr! No wonder Ralph is always complaining about the cold. Sunday we get into the 40s – woohoo! Guess I’m packing my long underwear. With my luck, it will be sunny and warm here the whole time I’m gone and will turn cold on Monday just in time for my return.
