Merry Christmas

Well, after 5 weeks we finally had a day where the temp was over 30 degrees. Mainly the temps have been 0 - 10 above with a few days below zero. It is amazing how warm 24 feels after 4 days at 5 degrees. But the cold weather does make for beautiful scenery and interesting living.

Holly's bookmobile is finally completed. It took 2 extra weeks, but she got it back and on the first day out with it, it broke down out in the country, near dark, on a 5 degree day. She ended up waiting 2 hours for a tow truck and didn't get back to Williston until 9pm. She now packs water and warm clothes with her each day.

The snow keeps falling, but is crystalized, and doesn't accumulate like wet snow and it just brushes off the vehicles. But the cold temps do freeze the doors shut, and we need to prewarm our vehicles before driving them. The locals tell us that the snow will be here until spring. We now know that each year we will have a WHITE: Halloween, Veterns Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Ground Hog Day, Valentines Day, Presidents Day, Easter, Tax Day and maybe a white April Fools Day Too.
We are headed to Phoenix on the 22nd, (Ah, warm weather), to spend Christmas with Holly's family. Then return to ND on the 27th and another day closer to spring.
Merry Christmas to you all, Pete, Holly, Boo-Boo & Tess...


  1. I'd leave a comment, but I don't know how.

  2. Ken and I were just talking about the temp. Isn't it amazing the difference between 15 degreed and 25 degrees? We don't have it as cold as you....yet!
    Only as low as the teens so far. Our snow is like yours though, powder like.
    Well, Have a wonderful (Warm) Christmas!
