I want to wish my son James Burnham a Happy 50th Birthday.
It has been so far, a real Winter this year, not the snowiest or coldest, just day after day Winter. With the exception of 5 days that the temperature was above 35 and 40 that melted the first 2 months of snowfall, it has been cold and snowy. We have had Winters where Big Blue was frozen over from here to Wisconsin and not so long ago a total snowfall of 260 inches. I’m sure my feelings are “age related”. 5 years ago I would climb through 2 feet of snow, today 2 inches is a challenge. The other factor is the wind out of the west that creates the “Lake Effect Machine” that produces a lot of snow. Now that I think about it, it really hasn’t been a bad Winter, just a lot of it. Maybe more sunshine would be nice.
