Not much of a winter…so far

Yes, it's cold outside...compared with what we've had for most of this so-called winter but it is not really that cold. It just seems like it. The temperature has not yet dipped into sub-zero numbers (without wind chill) and we're already a third of the way through February. We've had a couple of pseudo snowfalls and one sort-of ice storm. As winters here in the mountains go, this hasn't been much of one...so far. The forecast says a "wintry mix" next Tuesday but the talking heads on the tube hedge their bets by saying an approaching warm front could turn that into all rain.

Maybe Al Gore is right.

  1. I think Texas stole your winter from you. Its rarely been as cold as this winter here in the Texas Hill Country.

    Having never seen snow and ice here, I don’t think I’ll miss it if we don’t have it again. The counties in the part of Texas don’t have sand trucks, ways to salt the bridges…we get stranded in our homes for several days.

    After the 4 days of ice we had a couple of weeks ago, people rushed to the resturants and drinking establishments to celebrate their freedom from the frigid cold and the dangerous roads that held us all captive from participating in our daily routines.

    Yep, Al Gore might be right….

Keeping time around the world

In a period of my adult, professional, life, I spent many days (and nights) on planes flying around the world. For many of those years,
