Winter Olympics

My wife loves to watch the Winter Olympics. Women's ice skating is her favorite. I watch some too, and enjoy them, though I couldn't tell a sowcow from a toe loop if my life depended on it.

Trying to make the most of this very dry winter. We haven't had much precipitation since mid-September. Some light amounts here and there, but nothing significant. And no snow, not even in Flagstaff, where they had over 10 feet last winter! It's been so dry, we've had readings of 2% humidity, the driest I've ever seen anywhere.

Hopefully our weather will change soon. In the meantime, I lament the dryness for a moment...then go out and enjoy the brilliant sunshine and clear air. I guess compared to some parts of the world where it's grey and overcast all the time, we've got it pretty good.
