Funny Wayne, real funny.... NOT!!!
Winter began in SLC over a month ago.
I've been buried, flooded, and even taught my Mustang how to ice skate already.
I'm with Alex this year!
I HATE SNOW!
Can I just lock myself in my room and come out in April?

my dad was in iceland on winter solstice years ago and took a picture of the sun at high noon.... it is about that far over the horizon.... with nothing but frozen tundra-esque topo all around...
i love that pic and have an 11 x 18 of it framed on my wall...so when i start whining about winter, i look at that pic and feel very very very lucky......
i am sooooo happy the days begin to lengthen soon!!!!!! wooooohooooo!!!!!

And just think about it...we were going to join him in Iceland when he found us a house...He did...but couldn't get any furniture from base housing...(all used at the time)..
He told me that we probably wouldn't like up there anyway!!
That was a very long 6 months!!!
