Gone to D.C.

Well, I just thought to tell you that I am heading down to D.C. for ten days on Monday. It will be a great experience, as it will be a first for me. I think it is good to visit your capitol! I'll tell you all about it when I come back! So long for twelve days!

Oh for an old-fasioned winter!

Do any of you remember the days when snow used to pile up to the tops of power lines, or you couldn't get into town as the roads were full of snow, or you got blizzards and 20 below for weeks in a row? Or how about the years when horse and sleigh was the fastest way about due to the amount of snow? How I wish we could have winters like that again! Yes I know the power lines were shorter then, also the roads were not as well designed, and those stories about such cold and blizzards did get a little exaggerated, but the winters used to be harsher! How I wish we could get some 4 feet of snow and a good, cold, long winter!!!!

Yesterday my family and I went down to Madison to see our state senator, Sheila Hardsdorf get sworn in. That was a lot of fun! Actually it was the first time any of my family had been down to see the capital, so we made a day of it. While we were down there we took a tour of the capitol, and visited our stare representative, Andy Lamb. We also saw and got to shake hands with our terribly liberal Governor, James Doyle. One interesting fact about our capitol building is it has the 4th largest dome in the world (measured by volume)and it was built in the early 1900s with marble from six different countries, some of which is irreplaceable owing to its value. It was a great experience which all of us enjoyed! We now look forward to our trip to Washington D.C. later this winter.
