Brown Christmas

Without much if any snow in my Wisconsin area, I am dreaming of camping quite a bit. It is even hard to realize what the calendar actually says...instead of December it seems like March! My hubby and I are tied to the work world, so traveling south for a while isn't in the plans. So, I spend time reading posts from those who are camping now, and look forward to spring! It will be here before I know it!

I know the feeling Diane. Being a Wisconsinite myself I have been doing a lot of daydreaming lately. I can't just head south either as I pretty much burned up all my vacation time camping over the spring, summer, and fall I was so thinking about heading to Arizona at the end of Jan. to check out that big camping expo but not sure if I can do a trip like that in just a week. I want Spring to get here.

Our trip to Florida next week is being accomplished ONLY because there is no snow yet in the Chicago area. I'm sure that we wouldn't have even considered uncovering the trailer if we had a foot or more of snow on the ground. The brown winter thus far is giving us an opportunity to use the trailer at a time of year never before considered. Our previous "winter" camping has been in March to South Dakota (Pine Ridge Indian Reservation) and we often dodged snowstorms. And they have BIG ones out there!

The lake I live on in western Wisconsin finally froze over last night . Two days ago the lake was full of swans and geese (too many to count) swimming . The snow is pretty well gone and all I see when looking outside is a layer of brown leaves.
According to the weatherman it looks like we won't have a white Christmas this year!
I kind of miss the winters of my youth , the cold, the snow , the howling winds the hot cocoa to warm up with .
I guess I'm just getting old

Merry Christmas
Steve Dunham

I feel so blessed to have a brown Christmas. I am finally beginning to actually believe in global warming a little. Yes, the winters used to be colder but I am not complaining----------yet. Winter won't seem so long this year. Only 4 more months until camping season starts in Mn again.

Be patient, Winter is only 2 DAYS OLD! It will be deadly miserable with blizzards and freezing weather soon enough. In fact I kinda wonder if it will be physically possible to leave for Florida the first week of February.
If I were you I would still put that survival kit in your SUV!

In Chicagoland 1972 , the second week of February the temperature hit 70 degrees then went straight into spring!
Don't worry , I've got the inside scoop....
As long as the earth abides there will be seed time and harvest.
Merry Christmas!

Boy, I"m glad I don't have to wait that long. Two weeks, if I can get over the passes, we'll be headed for Death Valley.

Next year we'll leave at the end of November.

Ya know.... When we are home, we hear the call of the road, and would love to stay gone longer, But when we are on the road we soon long for home and hearth!
I hope to go for a couple of months all at once someday, but for now it seems 3 weeks is about the limit.
At least we can go several times a year in all different directions.
Have a happy trip, with "just enough" adventure along the way!

The grass always seems greener on the other side. Especially when your side is brown.

We're having a green & brown Christmas by choice as well as a G & B winter here in AZ. We'll go back to MI in April.

Temperatures

One day last week at 8:00 AM it was 29 deg F in northern Wisconsin and it was 39 deg F in Dallas Texas ( approx 1100 miles due south) I guess the grass is not always that much greener on the other side of the fence .

WE are definitely having a brown & green Christmas here in Oswego, NY. Only around 1" of snow for the season; it isn't unusual to have 40"-50" by now. It was 42F at 2:00 today - it just isn't natural!

Still, it does give me some time to work on the trailer. I'm just about finished adding a Xantrex Prowatt SW 1000 inverter. It is interesting working with #0 cable. Reminds me of tapping dimmer boards back in my working days.

Talking

-17C with a wind chill of -25C. sunny and bright. 10 cms (about 3 inches give or take) of beautiful white snow freshly fallen......a wonderful Christmas day......

okay.....now that Christmas day has settled into darkness, it's time for this snow to melt, the air temps to start to warm up and let's get camping!!!!!! that's plenty of winter for me!!
