time is twisted

Things not to be believed

I am home in WI.  The flights went smoothly and we managed to land in Green Bay about an hour before it started snowing.  The feared 10" turns out to have only been about 6" so everything is pretty and white but we're not stuck.  However, two bizarre things have happened that I wanted to share.

1)  There was lightning and thunder last night.  In the middle of the snow storm.  I've never seen that before - it was after sunset and everything was that orangish pale glow you get when it's snowing and blowing and then everything lit up.  It was very cool.

2)  I was just stung by a wasp on my little toe.  While standing in my bedroom upstairs.  No really.  My parents have been having work done on the house so a few different bugs have found their way inside as the siding has been redone and the windows replaced.  J killed a wasp in the spare room, and then we went into my room to look at something and suddenly there was a burning pain in my toe.  I looked down and saw another wasp crawling away.  (We killed him too.)  My little toe is a little swollen and numb but seems otherwise okay.

So apparently by coming back to winter I have confused the world and it's trying to cram all of the seasons into one visit.
