My SIL is orignally from Iowa and almost had a heart attack the first Christmas she came down here and we greeted her in shorts since it was about 75 that day.
On the other hand, my brother was stuck in his MILs house for four days the first time he went up there since the snow drifts were piled about 4 feet deep. They could not even walk a few hundred yards to his wife's grandmother's house.
I just got to Iowa for the Christmas holiday. Their Super Bowl? Not quite, but the Hawkeye fan base is fired up for this game. Stands in stark contrast to the fair weather LSU fans. If this was a contest between fan bases then Iowa would win 1,000 to nothing.
