That's a good point:

" it will be a cold snap relative to temps here lately but not
nearly as cold as last years period 11/11-11-21".
...and one we should all remember:
I haven't checked NWS Des Moines (or whatever your local NWS station is)....but like much of the USA this November, you are likely running way, way above normal. My normal NWS high yesterday is 54 F - it was 70 here yesterday!. So when (not if) we finally get some truly typical winter polar air in the northern USA, we're all going to say "wow 28 F that's really cold". Forgetting that in late November/early December lows in the upper 20's F is close to normal for many areas in the northern USA.
My normal December lows are around 27 - 30 F...I'm sure we see some lows in that range at some point in December. What we likely won't see is lows 12 or 18 F below normal like last Feb and at times in winter 2013/2014.
