All the Best to Everyone!

From the Frozen North…

Friday, December 31st, 2010

To the Sultry South! We reached Arkansas a day before thunderstorms last night that will bring in a cold front. Yesterday was a balmy 63 degrees, tomorrow will be in the 30’s.

X Marks the Spot

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

The X is in the southern sky. That's the way we're heading, looking for sun and warmth (at least above 32 degrees)!

Winter’s Icy Grip

Monday, December 27th, 2010

The mighty Mississippi stilled by the icy touch of winter. A little patch of open water is still visible.

The freeze and thaw cycles produced these icicles. I don't remember feeling the thaw cycles though!

Boxing Day

Sunday, December 26th, 2010

Our annual trek (semi-annual this year) to “Zum Golden Frosch” in Fountain City, Wisconsin. No boxing on the TV’s, but the Chicago Bears were playing.

Happy Holiday

A wonderful holiday celebrated with family in the cold, snowy North Country (Minnesota) amid the cheery decor at The Kensington.

Fall to Winter

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

Yesterday was the Winter Solstice and we are on our way to Spring! Wonder what the floral scheme will be for that season?

Winter Sport

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

The quintessential Midwestern winter sport; ice hockey! Kids can’t wait for the several days of below freezing weather necessary for a body of water to freeze. Local Park District workers flood whatever flat spot is available in the park and let the weather do the rest. In my old neighborhood they flooded the basketball court, here they flood a section of the soccer field, then the fun begins!
