The 12 Very Real Seasons Every Iowan Has Come To Know

In elementary school, we’re taught that there are four seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. If you’ve ever lived in Iowa, though, that doesn’t quite sound right. Our weather changes so quickly and goes to extremes at the most random intervals, that it really seems like we’ve got at least a dozen seasons. Read below, and let us know if any of these sound familiar.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
