Today was a beautiful day, warm temps, nice and sunny, atypical for mid January. And things are changin'. By late afternoon, the winds changed and came in from the northwest, accompanied by dark grey clouds. WeatherUnderground informs us that we are in a Winter Weather Advisory. The 3 C's are pretty excited about that, especially Melanie and me.
I looked out toward the northwest and saw those dark grey clouds chasing in. I held up my hands like a traffic cop to direct the winter weather right here. I realize this might not be a common practice. But we are deeply grateful for patterns which are typical for the cycles of this season.
