Think I am just thinking.

Words are but thoughts made visible.

Still winter in Nebraska.

   Not much to say over the last few weeks.  Well there has been snow, followed by a little rain, followed by more snow and a dusting of snow to top it all off.  It’s looking like Nebraska may set a new record for having snow on the ground for the most consecutive days in row!  Snow is still piled up about mail-box high out front of the house. 

   I really do not mind the snow all that much.  This has really been the first winter in perhaps 30 years, which reminds me of the winters I remember growing up in Wisconsin.  From what I hear, back up in Wisconsin, they have been have a very similar winter.  Normally there is about a good 10 degree temperature difference from there to here, but this winter it seems more like about 2 degrees.

  If we had any good hills around here, we could all go skiing.  But with the lack of much more than mole hills, in terms of skiing, I think cross-country skies are more in line.  Just doesn’t seem the same some how.  In the mountains, it ride to the top and then all you have to do is keep standing and you arrive at the bottom.  Here, there is no ride to the top, but then it easy to keep standing, just more difficult to get to the bottom, at it is over the horizon.

  But still, all in all, I think I am not in a hurry for spring.  After all, it takes much less overall time to shovel the snow off the driveway, as compared to how long it takes to get the yard mowed.

  So, “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!”
