It's 4 o'clock in the morning ...

... 4:48 to be exact, but I'm about to pay the penalty for losing track of time anyway. This involves going to a 6:30 a.m. meeting to accomplish what could have been accomplished at a noon meeting last Friday, if I hadn't forgotten last Friday that it was Friday and neglected to walk down the hill, having been invited to lunch.

At least it's warmed up to 9 degrees this morning, a considerabe improvement over yesterday's subzero.

But I started the morning by watching the lovely video embedded here --- John Pearson's January walk along the cliffs of Cordova and Elk Rock cliffs at Red Rock Lake, just up the road. John blogs here; not often enough, but still ...

Then, feeling more positive about winter, I went to Larry Stone's Iowa to read his little essay about the season.

Then, at Simple Pleasures, I found this link to an Iowa Public Radio interview with Corydon's Enfys McMurry about her new book, "Centerville: A Mid-American Saga." I don't have the time to listen now, but will come back here and do that later in the day (Just click on "Listen" once you've reached the Web page).

In the meantime, have a great day!
