Finally, It's a Regular Winter!

As a lot of you know, we've had a very unusual winter here in southwest Missouri the last few weeks. It started with snow at Christmas (not usual), followed by more snow at New Year's (again, not usual) which was followed by temperatures ranging from 18° to -13° (VERY not usual!). My day off last week had a high temperature of 5°. It's started to warm up a bit and today we will see a high of around 45° - a regular heat wave.

I was outside the library this morning, and someone pointed out the drain pipe behind my office. When I turned, this is what I saw.

It looks like an ice cube dispenser, doesn't it? Fortunately, most of the snow has melted and the streets are back to normal, including our gravel road.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Martin Luther King holiday weekend. I'm going to knit - yes, son, I'm almost done with the baby pods for your photo shoot!

Thanks for stopping by.

The drain pipe and ice looks like a sculpture. It's difficult these day to know what passes for 'normal' weather!
