Girls Write Out

Some seasons are declared the warmest on record, others the coldest. I'm not sure if they keep track of these things, but I think this winter should be declared the weirdest on record.

It started around here (Indiana) with a big snowfall way before Thanksgiving then led right into the holidays which featured mild springlike weather. Santa got disoriented when he visited Christmas Eve and thought he was in Georgia.

We were stunned after Christmas to drive into Vermont for skiing and research and find--no snow. We prayed, however, maybe too much, because the next day 10" fell. :)

New York was springlike on New Years Eve and so was Indiana when we returned home. We finally got a decent ground covering last week. I should mention, by mid January, most Hoosiers are usually sick to death of snow. Not this year. Especially the kids, who haven't had a single snow day.

Then last night, the ground covered with snow, I was awakened by two unexpected sounds. One, some of the loudest thunder I've ever heard. Two, Daisy, giving a sharp bark somewhere in the vicinity of my ear. She's not fond of storms.

All this during a winter that was supposed to include more snow storms, high snowfalls, and extreme temperatures. But winter isn't over yet, and if there's anything I've learned about Indiana weather, anything can change at a moment's notice.

The weather has been screwed up for over a year. Last year's Super Bowl was in Dallas, considered a warm-weather venue. They had so much snow and ice that the entire week was a bust. So this year, Indianapolis is the place and they prepared like crazy for snow and cold. So what do the forecasters say for Super Bowl week? Weather pretty much as it has been all winter: above average temps and above average precipitation (meaning rain). Another bust? Hope not...too expensive. Sign of the times? Hope so...Jesus can't get here soon enough!
