It’s now official. Things got chilly last night with wind chills
locally dropping to almost -30 and the white fluffy love from
above blowing around didn’t help. But once the wind chill got
up to a balmy -15 I did venture out to shovel.
Even that took longer than expected with my eyes watering in
the constant 25 mph breeze. It was shovel, wipe my eyes,
shovel, wipe my eyes, and repeat. But the job got done and I’m
no worse for wear.
Things are looking up though. By Wednesday the high is
supposed to be above 30 with a bit calmer breeze. My winter
gear held up and after several cups of coffee I can honestly
say I’m nice and toasty sitting at the kitchen table.
Our anniversaries are coming up and yes I meant the plural.
The wife got married on December 21st all those years ago and
I tied the knot on the 22nd. No problem, we just celebrate
both days. And a few short days after that it’s Christmas.
A great time of the year and it sure looks like it could be
a white Christmas for those of us on the east coast of Iowa.
I spent one Christmas in Hawaii, and while it is a beautiful
place I just couldn’t get in the spirit.
Regardless of where you are, hot or cold, we wish you a Merry
Christmas! In the mean time I have to find a pizza that has my
name on it.
