Well here we are…last day of 2019…end of a decade.
We are in FL at Three Rivers State Park for another month and a half before we hit the road again.
And believe it or not, I have been thinking about this post since the beginning of the year. Ok, for those of you who really know me, not hard to believe.
We spent LAST winter in Arkansas, on the shores of Tablerock Lake, just south of Branson. And it was cold. Unseasonably cold. And that is what this post is all about.
I wanted to be able to describe the weather in a memorable fashion. To be able to give it true meaning. To bring it to life for those who were fortunate enough not to have been there.
So why did it take so long? Who really knows. I am sure it has something to do with this whole blog thing. And then it could be that I didn’t have the time HA! But does it really matter. It just never got done.
But it’s not like I haven’t been thinking about it. The right words, the sentences to best describe our Arkansas Winter.
And it was like……
A story, where our hero or heroine awakens from a pleasant dream by the warmth of a fire, takes in the simple yet cozy surroundings of their home, and slowly makes their way to the door to greet another day. Only to be met by the reality of a devastated landscape, with perpetually dark and ominous sky’s that block the sun and its warmth. A post Apocalyptic grey day. Always.
And that was our Arkansas Winter. And that is why we are now in Florida. Period.
May the New Year bring you sunshine. Lots and lots of sunshine.
Happy New Year!!
