A different kind of winter

January 5, 2010

I’m used to the typical Midwest winter. Gray skies. Cold temps. Blustery winds, snow, sleet, and ice. Yes, western Nebraska suffers from all that, too, but not in the same quantity. While locals have told us that this is an unusually snowy winter, there seems to be a lot more sunshine here. We are “at elevation,” after all — about 3,900 feet, and the sun is stronger. High plains dry climate. While it freezes every night, the temps often get above 32 degrees Fahrenheit during the day. Y a veces, la escarcha bella.

And at times, beautiful frost.
