My exact words were and I quote, "Although I would rather have cold and
sunshine then 87 or better straight days of rain, 

Please read again, I said "87 days or better" because the last time that
I heard it was 87 and it was still raining. 

Love the idea of mud created easy boots, though,  using mother nature to
save money is something that I love to do. I will have to try it. :-)
Tell you children we see the sun on a regular basis and it can grow on
you. After a while we grow to really love the sun. although an
occasional day of clouds and rain is nice to have. But 94 STRAIGHT DAYS!
You know Noah only had to have 40 straight days to float his ark. Have
you started to build yours yet? If we had 94 straight days of snow, they
would have to shut down the state of ND and announce to the world that
officially ND no longer exists. But then again there are some people in
the US who don't believe that ND exists now. After all with only two
families living in the state it is an easy conception to gather. ;-)

We do have sunshine today but the temperature after being in the 40 and
50 most of February is down in the 20 today. Not fair.
