The weather was a little different a year ago.
We had snow last year. So much snow, starting right after Christmas. Snowdrifts were over my head. It was a nightmare. I posted these pictures January 27, 2011:
Today? It was about 50 degrees. I like this year much better. So far. I’m not counting on anything. But if for no other reason this year is miles and miles better than last. So far. Sort of.
Also a year ago was the twenty-fifth anniversary of the loss of the shuttle Challenger. Seems like a long time ago, and seems like it just happened.
