It’s Colder In Iowa Right Now Than It Is In Antarctica

Right now, it’s cold in Iowa. Not typical “winter in the Midwest” cold, but bone-chilling, pipe-freezing, Polar Vortex cold. This is the kind of weather that keeps us bundled up inside, and causes frost to form on the doorknobs even inside the house. In fact, right now it’s colder in Iowa than it is at the South Pole.

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:
