On the Sixth Day God Created Wisconsin

On the sixth day God turned to the Archangel Gabriel and said, "Today, I am going to create a land called Wisconsin.
It will be a land of outstanding natural beauty, a land of countless glaciers, pure lakes each one full of fish.It shall have tall majestic pines, peacefully flowing rivers, landscapes full of tall grass, and eagles, beautiful blue skies, forests full of bear, elk and deer, rich farmlandand fair-minded people.

God continued, 'I shall make the land rich in resources so as to make the inhabitants prosper and they shall be known as a most friendly people, people who practice being Wisconsin Welcomers every day.

'But Lord,' asked Gabriel, 'don't you think you are being too generous to these people of Wisconsin?"

''Not really," replied God "just wait and see the winters I am going to give them!"

(Thanks to Linda, our office manager, who sent this to me. )

Hey Mark, we've had our own little taste of winter. Monday morning we woke up to 9 inches of heavy, wet snow. That's a lot of snow for southern Virginia. That was followed by two days of frigid air (cold for southern Virginia) with lows around 10. Tomorrow however, we are going to be in the mid 50's with the weekend forecast highs in the low 70's. The snow is already almost gone, but should last through tomorrow. I do miss winter!
