Climates and People
The construction workers at the building were happy that "it was hot and dry here today." One week ago they couldn't work because "it was raining cats and dogs." Some of the workers stated that "the wet weather is for the birds." They would like to complete the building project during the "hot August days." In this place, the people, plants, animals, and insects all expect August to be hot. June, July and August have the warmest months for the past 100 or more years. However, it will be different in January. Then it will be cold and windy. And, it is not that way just at this place in Iowa. It is like that in the Midwestern part of the United States: hot summer seasons and cold winter seasons.
