Chilly town

It’s about -5 degrees here in Iowa, with windchills around -25.  Now I remember why I never get to show Sydney much of my hometown when we visit for Christmas . . .

We’ve been here almost a week, and our days have consisted in reading and grading (Sydney), scrapbooking (me), and eating, talking with my parents, and watching television (both of us).  I have managed to find a couple of good old movies on TV, but since the county was basically shut down this morning (no tow trucks were allowed on the roads) we didn’t get to church.  Guess that means I’ll have to find my Christmas some other way.

    my brother got a flat yesterday out in the middle of no where on US-20 and the bolts were frozen to the wheels… finally some guy gave him $60 and drove him to a bar, where another guy offered to change it with some power tools for $50. sounds like it was an eventful day yesterday, if you were outside!

    you could always walk to the Lutheran Church? 🙂

    I certainly could walk there, but after I did a bit of shoveling and got out to the end of the driveway I got murdered by the wind. I decided that was far enough for the day!
