29 Degrees w/ 88% Humidity

We had our own little Christmas last night because it was our only chance before we leave for Canada (we leave tomorrow!).

Steph got me this really cool weather station, which has a wireless outdoor unit and an indoor display unit. Well, this morning when I got up, it was 29 degrees Fahrenheit (-2 Celsius) outside with 88% humidity. No wonder it feels so cold out there. Brrrr...

Of course, the upside to this dampness is the beautiful frost that has lingered for the past few days. Trees, shrubs, weeds, spiderwebs and blades of grass are all coated with a thick layer of frost... it almost looks like snow... but more delicate. It's not quite so beautiful when you are walking out in the cold, but it is quite lovely when viewed through a window. :-)

We only have to put up with this wet cold for another 24 hours or so... then it is of to the land of the dry cold. It's -11C in Grande Prairie right now... about average for this time of year. But it won't feel as cold as our -2C with high humidity!

Edit: I just checked GP's weather... they currently have 86% humidity... so maybe it won't be a dry cold, eh?!?!

13 Years Ago

Thirteen years ago today, a few hundred people gathered together at a little country church in the middle of nowhere...


On that day, I became the luckiest man in the world. I still can't figure out how such a beautiful, thoughtful, incredible woman would fall for an old scrooge like myself, but I won't complain. I thank God every day for sending her to me, and for guiding us through a modern world full of all sorts of distractions. And most of all, I thank God for blessing us with two children who bring so much joy and laughter into our lives...

So, on this 18th day of December, in the year 2006; I just want to say...

Profound Question

So you know how in kids' books the animals are always eating grass covered with 'sweet morning dew'... well, my question is this...

Who in their right mind was eating grass at the crack of dawn and figured out that the morning dew was sweet?

Iron Chef Noah, ready for action...

Raiding the pantry sure is fun, Mom!

Why I do what I do... :-)
