The good news is I get to go back to Theodore Roosevelt National Park for a temporary promotion during my furlough. Everyone at Fort Larned thinks that is absurd on account of North Dakota being way too cold. They are probably right. Even I seem to have gotten used to the warmer weather here. It has made me soft. I had to turn the thermostat up two degrees and it still feels cold! So while the geese are heading south for a milder climate, we are heading face-first into the frosty abode of the north.
We are prepared for this transition, but when baby complains about being cold in this house, I tell her she has no idea what cold is. She doesn't listen and keeps complaining anyway.
Since we're going back north, I thought it might be fun to let you help me pick a new image for the TRNP homepage. Check out the following images and vote on your favorites on the right side of the blog for a limited time only!
