First! A BIG hello to all our friends, family and fellow travelers! We’ve been in Wisconsin almost five weeks now. It’s been a very HOT and HUMID summer for the most part. It’s something we are not used to. When there is rain, it is torrential. Massive amounts of rain for hours at a time.
This year we experienced several tornado warnings. Something else we are not used to. The good news is there were only two that were a threat to us. We lost power twice, once for only a few hours and once for almost 14 hours. If you are not accustomed to these events, it can be both daunting and terrifying.
On the upside, watching the cycles of crops in the massive farms are intriguing. Corn from sprouts to over your head. You can almost see it grow. Wheat, soybeans, alfalfa, potatoes and a dozen other crops flourish in the rich soil and abundant rainfall. And let’s not forget Wisconsin is America’s Dairyland!
We’ve been busy with family commitments with almost no time for touring and travel to nearby attractions. No worries, we will make up for it with a fall trip to Europe. We have two weeks booked at an apartment in Paris, a tour from Prague to Budapest. And finally a visit with friends in Switzerland. Overall it should be a blast.
In the mean time, here are some photos we thought might interest you. We send our best wishes to all. Thanks for all your support and ideas.
We send virtual hugs and kisses to all!
