The weather hasn't been great, but that isn't stopping Iowans from making the best of things.

DES MOINES, Iowa — When you move to Iowa from Arizona, you have to get a whole new wardrobe.And at age 48, Jenny in Waukee says she felt like a kid with her very first raincoat and rain boots...with unicorns to boot.

This little bird knows it's chillier than normal. The fluffed up feathers is a dead giveaway that the cold and rain are unpleasant for all creatures. It was 45 degree when this was taken. Not your typical September day.
