When we left Springfield for Wyoming three weeks ago, it was cold but not unbearable. We got some snow in Wyoming, but it never got really cold. As we were driving back, I noticed the thermometer in the car going down, down, down. When we left Casper, it was around 40 degrees. By the time we were halfway across Nebraska it was in the teens. It was 10 in Kearney and 5 in Lincoln. Driving across Iowa was paradise, with a wind chill factor of -19, and it has pretty much been that cold since we got back. We got more snow today, and it's supposed to get bitterly cold until sometime next week. So, what do two boys do when it's this miserable outside? Watch Sesame Street in their new rocking chairs from Granny and Granddad, of course.
