Missing my Husband

It has been 4 years since my husband left for Heaven. Sometimes it seems like yesterday and then again it seems like it has been forever. It is no fun at all losing the love of your life. We were married when I was 17 and he was 23. He went right into the Army and spent 18 months in Germany during the Korea Conflict. Then he came home and we raised 5 children and spent 21 years on an acreage raising feeder pigs too.

Strange Winter

We are having a rather strange winter. November was cold and snowy. December was warmer with not much snow. January we had a January thaw. Our snowfalls here have only been a couple inches at a time and then we would have warm days to melt it down. Now it is February and it is brutal. Today it started out about 19 and now is down to 14 and dropping. Having a little snow flurries too and that wasn't in the forecast. Yesterday we had freezing rain and sleet and made everything dangerously slick. There were many accidents on the Interstates and side roads as well. I stayed in. I don't ice skate :0)

Super Bowl Sunday

They could just as well change the name to New England Sunday. They win every year. It gets downright discouraging not to see some new teams playing for a change. It is getting to be, for me, that the best part is the commercials. So many people are now stranded in Arizona due to all the snow and flights cancelled going East. But what better place to be stranded than a nice warm State like Arizona.

January has brought us some better weather. After a blizzard, it has begun to warm up and melting the snow everywhere. I missed 3 days of church in December and the first Sunday of January due to weather. New Year's Eve was spent eating, playing games and boy was it cold. We had below zero temps and wind chills for weeks but now it is starting to warm and melt the snow. We still have February and March ahead of us. The Almanac said we would have a bitter cold winter and they were 100% right. We had a miserable November and then December was pretty good but January brought us more snow. There is still alot of winter left so who knows what that will bring.
