random stuff from iowa

I took this picture to show our southern friends that soda is indeed called 'POP' up north. We didn't make it up. I tried to get a good picture of this college student but he was walking way too fast. The purpose was to illustrate how bundled up people have to be to get from point A to point B. I believe it was 5 degrees on this day.

Not only was it cold in Iowa but there was plenty o'snow. This is a snow shovel. Notice the 5-gallon bucket next to it? That one BIG shovel.
One of the things I truly do miss about Iowa winters is the way the sky & the ground can be seamless. The winter colors can seem like you're inside a painting -
Here is Scott enjoying (NOT!) his 29 hour stay in the University of Iowa hospital. He developed a bloot clot & had to stay for monitoring. Bummer. :(
p.s. He's doing much better now. The doctors tell us the clot is gone & he needs to be on blood thinners for only another 3 weeks.
