72 for Des Moines today & 71 on Tuesday.
A couple of weeks ago Des Moines was over 80 & Sioux City hit 90.
Nevertheless, there hasn't been news about sprng snow melt flooding this year.
Was the winter snow pack (if you want to even call it that) too light this winter & the month of March too dry to generate flooding or are there other factors at work to explain the lack of spring flooding which traditionally is almost a given every late winter/early spring?

They're saying you may be in for some heavy weather come Wednesday, and I'm jealous again. This eternal California drought is messing me up. I know 99% of people think I'm crazy for complaining about endless sunny 70° days, but I'm about sick of it. I need some variety and action.

Atler, it was a fairly good snow pack, but it seemed like it melted in stages, so there was some high water but not the ice jams and usual problems. My back yard tends to flood in the low spots, but this year it was just muddy.

The weather guys and gals are talking about possible tornadoes on Wednesday (Apr. 1).

I've got to take some time this afternoon and check over my emergency supplies and get fresh batteries as needed. I don't have a cell phone right now, so I make it a point to carry one of those pocket NOAA weather radios when I'm out on the bike trails or otherwise away from the city. I can't see rain-wrapped tornadoes, so it's good to have that information.
