I really don't know how to dress these days. One week, it's cold with a biting wind and I know that winter's on its way. The next week, the temperatures soar into the stratosphere and it feels as if we're experiencing that rare treat called a January thaw. Two years ago, we had blizzards and this year, we have 60-degree December days. This year, it's a little hard to get into the ol' holiday spirit, sing Christmas carols, drag out the holiday jewelry and drive around to look at holiday lights when you don't need a coat and could even have the windows rolled down as you drive around to see the lights. I call the weather crazy, but truthfully, I find the weather patterns disturbing. Severe heat, severe drought, severe rains and severe storms seem to plague our land these days. I pray for a little equilibrium once again and for December in Wisconsin to act, well, like December.
