Winter?

We keep reminding ourselves that it is January. It really doesn't seem like it. Usually it's cold in January - at least in Northern Illinois it's cold in January. Green grass, buds on the trees, taking walks outside without a jacket on... that's spring weather and January isn't spring. Or it's not supposed to be. At least, not around here! With temperatures being in the 40's-50's over the last few weeks we find ourselves wondering what happened to that delightful frigid winter that we were experiencing and were supposed to enjoy for several months? The random radio waves that we can pick up in the middle of the corn fields out here bring rumor of 4-6 inches of snow this afternoon. But though overcast, it is neither below freezing nor is there any sign of precipitation of any sort. We'll see.

In the mean time, we're dreaming of a white winter...

Hey, hey! It's 30 degrees and snowing!! There's nothing quite like the site of the clouds emptying white powder over everything. Ah, yes. Winter is back!

Don't you remember? We had our January weather back in December. Can we be done now?

Not yet!! Please? We love winter - and spring, and summer, and fall - and would hate to cut any season short! :-)
