In 2020 in Waterloo, the final day to reach at least 90* was September 6 when it hit 91*. After that, it never got any warmer than 86* (October 10)

As for Cedar Rapids, the final 90+* day in 2020 also occurred on September 6 when it also reached 91*. It never got any warmer than 83* after October 9th.

Since it is September – and the temps will begin to rapidly plummet – the first date below 40* (on average) is usually the first week of October for both Waterloo and Cedar Rapids.

Small Town Iowa: Bily Clocks Museum in Spillville - Photo Gallery

No photo can do "justice" to show the true beauty of these historic clocks. You have to see them in person to fully appreciate the intricacy of each piece, along with their working and moving parts. Plus, the relaxing sounds of the chimes going off or music playing. Before you make the trip to Spillville to see them for yourself, let's take a virtual trip and see the highlights of Frank and Joseph Bily's work. (Photos taken by permission)
