Mild Nebraska January: What we’re in for

Calling this winter in Nebraska mild is an understatement: today I is the third day this year I have worn shorts outside, and a friend on  Facebook posted photos of himself grilling. We’re officially having Indian Summer here in January, and it couldn’t be more perfect.This is what it must be like to live in California or Texas.

What I love about this the most is not the great weather now, although that is great. This momentum should carry into the rest of the year, spring and summer. I keep Gatorade on hand during the winter to power through my work in the garage, but I have barely needed any of it. It takes so much energy to get through winter-shoveling snow, using more gas because you have to drive slower and with the heater on. Now I can put that energy elsewhere, and plus, my outlook on life is so much better.

This morning, I took a long, 2+ mile walk on the trail, and contemplated all that has been going on in my life. I’m working on a Bible study project (which hopefully you’ll read more about soon) and writing this blog, and getting new ideas for it every. I’ve been humbled by all of the view, and I wanted to thank all of you who have been reading this. Today, I have already shatter my record for view on a single day, with a piece I barely promoted. Thank you, and I hope I can keep finding topics that pull you in.



Here is a shot of the aforementioned Seward trail, albeit from last November.
