And Winter Begins

Today is the first day of Winter so I celebrated with a nice walk in South Omaha and Bellevue.  Over the five and a half hours and 16.1 miles (25.9 km) of the walk I tried to find a picture that would illustrate the first day of winter but, since the temperatures went over 50℉ (10℃) there was nary a lick of snow to be found (except pathetic little patches in the shady spots).  So to illustrate the first day of winter, I will have to resort to using a picture I took a week ago.

Ice floes on the Missouri River taken from the Bob Kerrey pedestrian bridge.
This is an oddly warm Christmas week and the weather for Christmas day - 60℉ (15.5℃), 60 mph (96.5 km/hr) winds, and rain - is even farther from normal.  Damn 'Jyna' hoax!!!

I hope everyone had/is having a great Winter Solstice!
