Last Summer, Forbes released their list of America’s “Wildest Weather Cities,” which included nominations in categories like the coldest city, hottest, wettest, windiest, and “most variety.” The city I currently live in, Springfield, Missouri, won honors in that last category, and this winter further reinforced its place in the top spot.
We’ve had a brutal wave of ice for the past two days, but in the last month we’ve seen 70-degree temperatures, snow storms, and two separate, deadly tornado outbreaks — in January! In fact, there was one day last month that it dropped from a comfortable 64 degrees to 16 degrees in less than two hours. No joke. That’s a 48 degree drop!
