Just because of the weather alone.

We're in agreement on this. I had a chance to move there. There is a lot to like, but it's too dang cold for me!

to the OP: I think what this person is trying to say is if you're used to basic manners, don't pick "DSM."

I would prefer the Twin Cities as I like the built environment, job market, and lakes. Climate there really isn't too much different than Wisconsin. Northern MN and northern WI are far colder than the Twin Cities.

GS, I'm turning 56 . . . I don't do subzero temps well for days on end, anymore.

If I make it over there to Madison, this summer, maybe you, your wife, and I can have a beer somewhere and discuss that face-to-face.

I just posted the 2015 RAGBRAI info in the general Iowa section of the forum.

Meemur
I recall from my childhood in northern Iowa that we would pack our serious winter duds for the December convention trips to Minneapolis our family took for a few consecutive years. It wasn't always extraordinarily cold in Minneapolis as compared to home but there was always a difference to some degree & there was always snow cover in the Twin Cities.
One set of my grandparents lived in southeastern Wisconsin & we noticed a difference typically between there and where we lived in terms of both temperatures & snow cover.
My brother currently lives near Madison & we follow each others' weather so just for fun Meemur, pull up the Weather Channel site & enter your own Des Moines zip code & check out the week & 10 day forecast. Then enter the name Madison, Wi for a comparison. The forecast shows a projected difference of between 10 to 20'some degrees between Madison & Des Moines everyday in the 10 day forecast.
I'd supply the link here for you but on my home computer I have my own zip code as the default for the Weather Channel site.

I'm a weather geek, too.

I've been in the Cities in February. I thought it was like being in the lab fridge where they store all those ice cores!

No complaints about Iowa right now. It has been in the 40s. I grilled out last night.
