weather is getting OLD!!

This winter is just dragging on and on. The weatherman (or weatherperson to be politically correct) is telling us we are in for some more snow tonight and tomorrow. They are using words like "significant" when they talk about how much snow we are going to get. How many inches are in a "significant"?

We did the "visit our relatives" thing Saturday afternoon and then met up with Rob and Jany Runion at Brickers Pub in Brownsburg. We had a great time munching on "bar" food and watching the ARCA race. Danica Patrick was making her stock car debut in this race. She did a great job and finished 6th even after she did a big spin and slide. She is a very talented driver as well as having a top notch car and engine package.

Sunday we met up with Niles and Deb in Lebanon. We made some decisions regarding our summer vacation plans. We are going to the Black Hills in July. Deb brought her computer and mifi hook up so we could decide on a campground. The mifi gadget was really cool and they are very pleased with it. They can hard wire it to a single computer or can use it as a wireless modem to provide Wifi for up to 5 computers. We decided to head to Custer S.D. and are going to get reservations at Custer's Gulch Campground. They have gotten good reviews on http://www.rvparkreviews.com/ and are close to all the attractions.

Sunday evening we were both perched in front of the TV to watch the Superbowl. We sure were disappointed in the outcome but it was a great game. Several of the players for New Orleans attended college here in the Hoosier state including their quarterback Drew Bees. They played a better game than the Colts and deserved the win.

I have to go into the office tomorrow morning and take an exam to "certify" for my job. I have been studying for the last 2 weeks. They give us 2 hours to take the test and mine starts at 9am. We'll see how it goes. I'll keep you posted.

  1. Hang in there - winter doesn't end with advent/finish of Christmas [as most seem to think] - funnily enough there are a few more months tacked on. It will warm up soon enough.

    Good luck on the testing.
