Last January and the January before...

I talked to my father, who resides in northeast Nebraska, and he is snowed in. In fact the whole town is snowed in for the 2nd time in the past 2 weeks. Temperatures to -28 were forecasted for overnight. People shiver when they think of Alaska in the winter. Our low last night was 33…above, that’s 61 degrees warmer than the cornhusker state. We were there last year at this time helping my father and I was cold to the bone. Such is the Midwest with a real winter.

Two years ago at this time, we were in Milan, Italy where the temperatures were consistently in high 30’s to high 50’s. We were there for 3 weeks and saw no snow other than in the Alps. This year is different; temperatures at or below freezing, with snow and ice storms. The coffee shops (on every block…must be where Starbucks came up with their business plan) are no doubt thriving.
