Why I left Iowa.

On the sixth day God turned to the Archangel Gabriel and said: 'Today I am
going to create a land called Iowa. It will be a land of outstanding natural
beauty. It shall have tall majestic landscapes full of buffalo, tall grass,
and hawks, beautiful skies, forests full of elk and deer, rich farmland and
fair skinned people.

God continued, 'I shall make the land rich in resources so as to make the
inhabitants prosper, I shall call these inhabitants Hawkeyes, and they shall
be known as a most friendly people.

But Lord,' asked Gabriel, 'don't you think you are being too

generous to these Iowans?

'Not really,' replied God 'just wait and see the winters I am

going to give them.'



lol... My mom who still lives in Iowa sent this to me today along with the bone chilling negative temps. I couldn't help but laugh a little. I don't miss the cold!!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Mkarel- I didn't know they would do that either!!! When I went to school in Iowa they didn't EVER let us out because it was too cold... We had 2 hour late starts. I remember standing at the bus stop with my eyes watering and being so bundled up that I couldn't walk right.



CDT-There must be a hole in the border that allows all that frigid Canadian air to sweep down across the mid-section of the States!!!!

you should invite your mom to live with you in the winter time so she can be warm.

My Mom and Dad (step) still farm up there. ( Go Farmers! ) They have been talking about retirement. I think they're looking at Texas, we get too much cold here in Arkansas!!! They're heading for the DEEP south.
