A Cold Thursday Afternoon

OK, this is going to be my first official, official post on this new blog.

It is butt cold outside and just when I thought it couldn't get any better I found out that I was wrong. While it is true that we are supposed to get yet another 2" of snow tomorrow, the temps are supposed to be up in the 40's next week. That is both good and bad in my book.

Good because that means that my furnace will not have to run as hard, or at all. The vehicles will start easier, I don't have to wear as many layers of clothing, etc.

Bad because that will mean melting snow which means sloppy roads. It also might mean water dripping in to my basement as it seeps into the ground and comes in through various little cracks that I have in my foundation.

It is staying light out longer though. That is the one thing that I really hate about winter- darkness and short days. I need light. The natural sunlight is pretty much what keeps me from going completely insane...although that is still up for debate among some.

I am looking forward to warmer weather. Now that I have kids I can appreciate the need to get out of the house more. This spring and summer I plan on more visits to the parks, more walks, more bike rides, going camping and fishing. This summer my daughter will be 4 and my son will be 2. Those are great ages for fun.

I just hate being stuck in the house.

Hey, Chris. This is Greg Reimer. My wife showed me your blog, and I'm glad I found it. Hope the winter hasn't got you too down. The thing I hate about the winter, plus having a toddler, is the endless string of viruses that seem to kick in around mid-December. Shivering in the cold trying to stay alive sucks. Anyway, I've decided to set up a blog to discuss my own skeptical feelings about religion, here. Your comments are welcome, if you feel so inclined.

Cheers,
Greg
