Dear Mr. Mullings:
What, you didn't think it would be cold enough on Grand Avenue in Des Moines, so you had to go to Alaska?
The Quadrennial Caucus Promotion Committee
The five-day forecast for Des Moines calls for a high of 36º and a low of 27º with "intermittent snow showers growing steadier and heavier late."
The weather will be coming in from the west, so it will begin in Sioux City and Council Bluffs (across the river from Omaha, Nebraska) and work its way east. Don't think for one second that the campaigns aren't worrying about whether and where they will need to have four-wheel-drive vehicles available.
