Must be winter in Wisconsin, because the snow is now here
As I’m writing this, we are being hit with our first measurable snow storm of the winter and I can’t say that I like it.
But, this is Wisconsin and it will get a lot worse before it gets better. So either accept it or move somewhere else.
And that, my friends, is easier said than done. The snowplow just went through on my street and I don’t think I could get out of my driveway if I tried.
The snow is piling up like crazy. Lake effects, I guess. And I’m not referring to the tavern in downtown Kewaunee. I know there are perks about living near the big lake, but more snow isn’t one of them, at least in my humble opinion. OK, I’ll quit whining about the weather now.
• Well, the Green Bay Packers pulled out another squeaker last Sunday against the lowly Browns in overtime again. And if they have a problem with Cleveland, how can this team ever compete with the Carolina Panthers, its next opponent?
Sounds like quarterback Aaron Rodgers is improving each week, but I doubt he will play this Sunday. I did just hear on the news that he has been medically cleared to play, so we will see. All I know is that the team needs to win out to have a chance at making the playoffs and that is doubtful.
This week the Packers play at noon at Carolina. The following week the game is on a Saturday night, Dec. 23 at 7:30 p.m. at Lambeau Field against the Minnesota Vikings, and the last game is at noon Dec. 31 (New Year’s Eve) in Detroit.
So, these last three games won’t be easy wins by any means. But if the players get their stuff together, I think it’s possible. Only time will tell.
• As of the date of this publication, we are just nine days away from the Christmas holiday. It’s hard to believe, isn’t it?
And before we know it, it’s going to be 2018 and we’ll all wonder what happened to 2017. Hopefully everyone will have a happy and healthy 2018. We never know what’s in store for the future and I do believe it’s better that way.
• I found this cute story on the internet recently. It’s titled “Out of the Mouths of Babes.”
Mrs Vasey, the teacher, came up with a good problem. “Suppose,” she asked her young class, “there were a dozen sheep and six of them jumped over a fence. How many would be left?”
“None,” answered little Paul, the farmer’s son.
“None, Paul? You don’t know your arithmetic.”
“No, Mrs Vasey, you don’t know your sheep. When one goes, they all go.”
And with that, I’ll say goodbye. Have a great week, everyone.
