Great White North


I'm looking past the computer monitor at a vista of tall pines and snow. There's a long path, shoveled, lined with lights, leading down to the frozen lake. It's absolutely beautiful and absolutely cold. High today has already been -- 20 -- it's headed down to 2 by this afternoon. The skiers have just left and the first group of dogsledders is out now. I'm waiting my turn. I have on so many layers, I can hardly bend to sit! Are we having fun yet -- yes -- and it's just going to get better!!!!

It was in the 70's yesterday in Edmond. Today is supposed to be cooler in the 50's. I can't wait to hear about your dogsleding. Do you remember Sargeant Preston and his dog King? What a great show! BTW: I've got a 2wk free scrip to the Edmond Sun.

Hold on for dear life, Elaine! And hopefully the dogs are spooked by evil Spider Man.
