    Osan Air Base, (K-55), Oct 1969-Nov 1970. Only place I've ever been where the wind, especially in the winter, blows from all four directions at the same time. No where to go to get out of it except inside. And combat training and maneuvers in the winter were about as much fun as sticking your pecker in an electric pencil sharpener. The only thing I could keep warm was my feet, and only because I had on those bunny boots...the white ones with an air valve on the side where you could inflate them, and the air would insulate your feet. Had one of those big heavy winter parkas but the wind went right through it, not lie a knife, but like a claymore...the sword. I've never been so cold in my life, and I say that even after spending a winter at each, Minot AFB, North Dakota and Malmstrom AFB, Montana. I can't imagine what it must have been like for the Marines at the Chosin Reservoir during the Korean "police action".

    Mowed the grass on Saturday, and Sunday. Got out in the back yard with some spray paint making marks on the ground so we can figure out where to put our new shed, and then I got busy staining our fence. Couldn’t do too much though as the wind kicked up.


    I think I may have to box up all of my cold weather gear and put it in the attic.
    Prepare for the worst, hope for the best

    Daytime has been pretty nice here, high 60s to mid 70s, but we've had several nights it got into the low to mid 30s. Wonder what January and February are gonna be like.
