Wisconsin Barn - Ours
Early Morning, December 29
After 19 consecutive days of gray dreariness, we've seen the sun at last. We're in the dark, cold days of winter, so seeing the sunshine is an immense boost. Of course it also means that the temperature is likely to drop pretty low tonight.

Truck Waiting for Mid Day Corn Transfer
A huge combine is roaring its way through an adjacent corn field. Here a tractor and wagon are transferring the corn to the waiting truck. See those shadows? That means sunshine! In fact, it was so bright that it was hard to get a decent photo. I am not complaining. I love that bright sunshine!

Now we're coming to the time of year when it gets really cold and dry. The snow squeaks beneath your booted feet and the boards of the boardwalk sound hollow when you walk on them. I don't mind the cold when there's no wind. We are blessed with wood to burn to keep the house warm. Of course, that doesn't mean that I don't wear polar fleece nearly every day in the winter.
Some of us love the snow.
I also am in no rush to take down the Christmas tree. The added cheer of the lights and ornaments helps during the dark weeks (months).
There is a reason they delay the airing of Downton Abbey in Wisconsin until January. ;-)
