Winter Wonderland

In a little over four hours, the Winter Solstice will mark the passing of another season. Having spent most of Spring, and all of Summer and Fall deployed, I'm looking forward to Winter because I have high hopes of returning home before the end of this season. (Really high hopes if you've checked my counter lately.) I'm still trying to stay prepared for the inevitable bad news of a delay (this year's seemed to be a never ending string of bad luck) but at the same time stay hopeful and prepared to resume a normal life.

After lots of Christmas packages arriving around last weekend, it's been a few days with no mail. I'm guessing there will be one more big delivery before Christmas and I'm hoping to see another package or two in it.

While the holiday should make a three day weekend, we are unfortunately having to do a bit more extra work this weekend thanks to some VIPs who want to come visit us and show how much they care. Oh, the irony.

Happy Winter, everyone!

It sure is winter. We have 29" of snow that has blown in to drifts. Halted all travel and the state came to a stand still! Sun came out this afternoon but it will be a while before it warms up enough to melt the snow.
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas! Thank you all for serving.
