The road home for most of my life. I have lived here or near here for 43 years except for 19 years elsewhere from 1969 to 1986 and then again from 1995 to 1997.
From the vantage point on this rise I can see the Smoky Hills State Forest in the distance and the fields that lie on either side of the road and the ribbon of highway stretching before me. I took these photo out the windshield…no I was not driving.
The fields are black and the snow and dirt (snirt) are melting in the ditches. No problem with flooding this year…at least not so far. I can see the Fire Tower in the distance but I know right where to look for it after 43 years.
We are unseasonably warm. It was 48 F or 8 C eh! The sunshine was so warm. I wore my crocs with socks and it felt so good. Today I will haul a couple of lawn chairs out of the garage! Just think we are about 70 degrees warmer than we were ten days ago. Will it last? Probably not but it is a nice winter break.
