What's the famous Game of Thrones quote-turned-meme? WINTER IS COMING! Well, it's a ways off yet. That said when it hits the state of Iowa, it will mean harsh... COLD! And yay, SNOW! Ohh and, woo... ICE! Huzzah, can't wait. But it also means one miserable day. Well, one really miserable day. Yes, I will elaborate.

Iowa has a "worst day of the year"

So once 2021 is flying by, most Iowans are preparing to enjoy leaf color changes and long bonfires with Octoberfest beers and pumpkin-spiced, erm, spice. Lucky for us, we've already passed our most miserable of the year, according to the website Ezvid Wiki. But never fear, it will be back soon enough.

The site ranks February 14th as the most miserable day in our state. To determine this, the site polled 3,000 Iowans and used data from 36 different winters (1980-2016) to determined that this specific day, February 14, was the coldest and overall snowiest single day in Iowa during that time period. Oh, and it's also Valentine's Day which if you don't have a plus one, is already pretty miserable...

Is this study not maybe a little skewed? Come on now

Now, isn't it possible a large number of people chose this date because it's Valentine's Day? Who knows. Ezvid Wiki's findings say our average temps for February 14th is 17 degrees, and we average almost one inch of snow. Hey, it's something to look forward to, don't you think?

Stay strong my single friends, looks like everyone in Iowa is miserable on Valentine's Day. But before we get there, we have a lot of the fall season and pumpkin-spiced crap to enjoy first.

Iowa is the capital of the Midwest! Ok, that's unofficial, but it's my stance. Here's what NON Iowans think of us.
