Yesterday we had the frost. Today it was ice. We're supposed to have rain this weekend and then snow next week. Yay winter.
31 days until Angie and I go to Florida. It was 77 & sunny there today. We can't wait.

Anyone have any ideas how to motivate oneself to exercise? I just can't get into it this winter. I'd much rather sit down.

We've had a long string of foggy days and nights lately. The fog, along with the cold weather, has caused this hoar frost to coat damn near everything. It's beautiful. I haven't been able to get out and take photos of it until today on the way home. The light sucked, but I wanted to get some photos before it disappears.

Winter still has it's ugly grip on us here. We've had a decent week though. No snow and mild temps. I've seen -21 degrees and 42 degrees in the past few weeks. Again, Al Gore is a jackass.
Angie and I are going to take another short trip to visit her parents in Florida in February. We went last year and it was a perfect trip. Will be nice to get away from winter and children. I swear I've aged a week every day this winter.
Belated kudos to the Iowa Hawkeyes for their big Orange Bowl victory and overall great season. It will be a lot of fun to watch them again next year. They should have a very solid team and all the big games will be played at home. Go Hawks!
I've found out recently that I have high blood pressure. I've been on a medication for it. After a doctor visit a few weeks ago, it's been increased from 10mg to 20mg. They say stress has a lot to do with it. I think my daughters are trying to kill me.
I also found out that I have "borderline high" cholesterol. I take full responsibility for that. I like bacon & eggs too much I guess. The doctor said I can either take medication for it, or try to get it down with diet and excersize. I chose the latter. We'll see how it goes in three months.
