On New Years Day



It seems we don't get snow like we used to in Minnesota these days. It was a joy to experience a bit of it on New Years Day.

It looks amazing - all we got was some drizzle and cold wind.

It seem like more and more that's all we get as well.

I'm just mulling over your previous post at the moment- you've covered quite a lot of ground, so it might be a little while before I respond to it.

[Plus, it's my little brother's birthday today, so I'm going to be a bit busy with that. No matter how fascinating a blog post is, it just can't compete with the allure of a nice Chinese meal]

Take your time. I need to catch my breath a little from time to time as well.

And wish your bro a happy birthday from me! How old is he?

He's... [desperately tries to remember what his own age is, then deduct the right number of years] 23.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who does that. I usually have to ask Megan how old I am!

I had to quickly check my blogger profile, just to be sure. I think it's an attempt to deny getting older.

Your situation there is like ours here in the fSU. It's appalling. January 3rd and slushy rain washing ALL the snow away. Almost in tears.

Winter has just become the death of summer. In the old days we were transported to a wonderful new world of pure white wonder. Now days we are left with with nothing but the pain of living through the funeral until spring. My boy will probably never know the winters I had growing up. Very sad indeed.
