This past Sunday in our little portion of the east coast of
Iowa we broke a record set in 1868. We had measurable snow for
eight days in row breaking the old record by a full day. We
also have 14 inches of snow on the ground because of it.
I’m just glad that when all was said and done we have over a
foot of snow. And just in time for the warm up on Wednesday when
we could see 40 degree highs. That may cause some sloppy
And it’s good for the farmers as well. The snow will melt
slowly as spring arrives and put much needed moisture into the
fields. Yet with all that snow we are still about a foot below
normal. We’ll take it. Our snow shovel is worn down to the nub.
This could not have ended on a better day as that means we have
today to celebrate and not shovel. What’s to celebrate you ask?
If you have a minute we’ll tell you.
February 12th, 2018 is Lincoln’s birthday, National Lost Penny
Day, Hug Day, National Plum Pudding Day, NAACP Day, National
Freedom to Marry Day, Clean Out Your Computer Day, Oatmeal
Monday, Oglethrope Day, Paul Bunyan Day, Safety Pup Day, Sexual
and Reproductive Heath Day, and Shrove Monday.
So even though it may seem like just another Monday, it could
be a party in a plain brown wrapper. Enjoy our Monday, pick a
holiday, and enjoy our beautiful day.
