About the weather, but nobody is doing anything about it. At least it's a holiday (Martin Luther King Jr.) and not everyone has to go anywhere. Even here at work the outside temperature is -17F (-27C) . Up at the airport its -24 with a 21mph wind giving a windchill of -47. Damned chilly, if you ask me. It has been considerably colder in the past, but climate change has lulled us into complacency over the last couple of decades. These cold snaps used to last a couple of weeks, now only a few days. It is a dubious benefit of global warming for some of us, but not so good when looking at the big picture.
Today we are inaugurating President Obama for a second term. Officially it was yesterday, but, whatever. The president's hair is graying like many of his predecessors, his daughters are growing up, and Michelle is still classy and hot. I really think the whole country should be taking today off. At least the Cooker and Stitch get to stay home and take care of the horses and clean the barn. Maybe they can have some down time, too.
Of course I have to walk past the forklift to get there.
The good thing about "working" on a day like this is that I can write this instead of actually working. It will be a slow day during the slow season and I will actually do a fair amount of useful work-related stuff, but taking a little break to have a little life is an advantage that I can appreciate. Tomorrow I may stay home to take care of the farm as I have to be here on Saturday this week. This is what winter is like in my world. I hope your winter is gentle.
I better get back to work.
