It is now mid-February and the ground is covered in 12-15 inches of snow here in Iowa. Last week the temperatures were consistently below zero for daytime highs and frigid at night. This weekend we are expected a respite from the arctic cold as the temperatures will be in the twenties and low thirties.
The snow cover while covering the ground has created a surreal element to all the fallen trees from last summer’s Derecho. Many of the trees although uprooted still remain in a perpetual “fall” as they are trapped at a 45 degree angle with the ground.
I will capture some photos this weekend and share on this site next week.
