I was riding my bike up Adams Saturday morning when I saw a friend walking toward his job at the downtown library.
As always, I asked about his daughter. My wife and I have known her since she was an infant 25 years ago.
He updated me and I was pleased but certainly not surprised to hear that she is doing well.
One thing, though.
She lives in Wisconsin now. Before this winter, she had thought growing up in Spokane and then going to college in Missoula had prepared her to deal with whatever winter dished out.
In parts of the Midwest, the winter of 2013-14 bordered on surreal.
What reports did you receive from friends and relatives back there?
