America’s Wildest Weather Cities

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!
