Winter


It may barely be December, and winter doesn't officially start for a few more weeks, but you wouldn't be able to tell here in Wisconsin over the past few days. On Saturday, we got about 6 inches of snow, followed by several hours of hail and freezing rain. It made for some real treacherous driving, but it was kind of fun to see snow again. Fortunately, they know how to clear the roads pretty well here, so things were relatively back to normal in a day or two. Not to be outdone, Mother Nature must have decided that she likes snow-covered roads because she decided to dump 5 more inches of snow on us yesterday. Driving home from work last night was less than enjoyable.

Today is a nice and sunny day, although I think the forecast is for a high temperature of about 24 degrees (Fahrenheit). And tomorrow? Oh, just 3-4 more inches of snow. I wonder if I could find a job where I could spend my summers in somewhere like Wisconsin, but then spend winters in somewhere like San Diego.

I've also been messing around a little lately with YouTube, as you may remember from our trip to San Diego about a month ago. Anyway, I've been taking some pictures of our backyard lately and it kind of became a cool little time-lapse showing the transition from fall to winter. Thought I'd share it here.

We are feeling your pain when it comes to Old Man Winter. Guess we are in the path of another storm starting Thursday. Fun fun fun!

The snow looks pretty nice to me! Beats rain. Find your inner child Jason and get a sled out! Good time lapse.

I've actually got this mental image of you sitting out on your back deck in a "Fargo" style outfit with a bottle of Southern Comfort and your camera...

Me in a Fargo-style outfit? You don't know me at all, do you?

"Ya, sure. Ya betcha!"
