This is my fourth North Dakota winter. It’s cold outside, in case you haven’t noticed. This is not as cold as it will get, though. I’ll be ready when it does.
Sunset comes early these days. It’s 4:45 p.m. and it already looks like night outside. The sun also rises so much later in the morning. Because my work schedule now keeps me indoors during most daylight hours,Â I feel like I have transformed into a nocturnal creature.
I hope this doesn’t mean I’m turning into aÂ vampire. Then again, my fiancee loves Twilight, so she might consider that an improvement.
But I’m not changing my name to Edward.
