So...you may know that I am not the top of the class when it comes to technology. However, with that said I just downloaded photos and designed our Christmas Card. The order should arrive in a week or so. Now this may not sound like a big deal to some techies....But is this house its a Christmas Miracle.

What does a Sun Dog mean to you? We saw one this afternoon over Lake Onalaska. One coworker said that farmers say this means it will snow. I thought it had something to do with the extra cold weather. Another person said he had no idea. Now after looking up Sun Dog it means beside the sun. It is a colored patch of light in the sky. I think I am going with the Farmers.

Its time again to do the Christmas shopping. I do enjoy shopping local for a number of reasons. First of all it is for the good of all concerned. Second, I do enjoy the personal touch. It is so nice to be helped by folks that have been helping you for years. This year I sent a number of emails for local shops to ask pre questions about items that I and looking for. Good Luck! Santa says.......Shop Local!

Our neighbors to the north are locating shovels, ice scrapers, snow pants, hats and mittens. We did dodge a bullet for the most part in the coulee region. (this time). The all important low, is located almost on top of us and that prevented us from getting the snow and just rain this time. If the low is over Chicago then the La Crosse area is more apt to get snow. I will be watching for the low location all winter! How about you?

Wow...what day is this? A lot of us have been off work for four days now. It may take most of the week to get back in the swing of things. The weekend also gave us maybe the last chance to work outdoors on the Christmas lights with out freezing. The long term forecast looks like old man winter is almost here.

Eighteen percent fewer deer were harvested this year. Why? It was just to cold to soon. I guess I didn't think that this would impact the food pantries as well. Did you know that each year some very generous hunters donate the meat to processing businesses which in turn prepare ground meat and is then given to food pantries. For some folks this is the only way them to put meat on the table. Wow....generous hunters and meat processors we are thankful for you!
