Indiana is a beautiful state. From the emergence of the early spring flowers to the last of the fall colors and into the brilliant white of the new-fallen snow, this state never fails to impress. But if we are honest, we will have to admit that January is rarely considered one of the more picturesque months.
However, yesterday offered a perfect mid-winter reprieve. We enjoyed a beautiful sunrise, a light ground-cover fog and a 65-degree spring-like day; all in the heart of winter. To make it even more unusual, the day ended with thunderstorms and torrential downpours.
Despite the rain, it was a fantastic day; one not often found in the bleak mid-winter of Indiana.
