As I sit here by the floor to ceiling windows at the Fargo public library, listening to the water feature on the wall, and looking out at the spruce trees with thier light dusting of snow highlighting thier branches, I wonder, does the cold and dark days make the beautiful days more awesome?

While the sky seems to be steel blue rather than the incredible blue from a week or so ago, the shadows are more muted and the colors seem more welcome. The red and grey of the Fargo Civic center seems to stand out from the earth tone of the other building in downtown.

I suspect that when I my time in Fargo comes to an end, there will be some regret felt.

I can't say that about Washington D.C., New York City or Houston Texas.

Cheers

Glad you discovered the Fargo Public Library, but then I'm slightly biased . . .

Yeah, well I found an original 1964 edition of the History of the Battle of the Bulge, complete with battle maps written by the official U.S. Army historian. Standard Army Green binding with Property of the U.S. Army stamped all in it.

It is taking a while to read it. It is only 600 or so pages but I had to re-check it after 3 weeks and hope to have it finished this week. I am starting to get the rhythm of the book now. How the author related the battle from the north to the south, and how he located points and military units on the map.

This is serious good stuff for hiding the basement while the temps plunge to negative -25 degrees.
