A celebration of winter


Other than this most recent blast of snow, we have had a mild winter in central Iowa this year. Even so, we continue to be surprised by the number of Iowans who grumble every time a snowstorm is forecasted.

This is Iowa.

Snow falls here.

Every year.

So as born-and-raised Iowans, we not only accept the snow, we roll around and play in it. And we think you should, too.

In this week’s cover story, we offer a realm of arts and entertainment activities to keep you busy this winter so you can actually enjoy the cooler temps and all the frosty white stuff. If after reading this you still can’t find a way to enjoy the winter weather activities, then we suggest a lengthy southern vacation to help bring back your senses. Or if that doesn’t work, you might want to seriously consider renting a moving van. But before you do that, give Iowa winters a real chance and try to enjoy all that the season brings.

Thanks for reading. CV
