If you've checked my blog recently, you've noticed that I haven't been posting much. We've been traveling while taking a short break from Minnesota winter and arrived here on the sunny beaches of Orange Beach. Guess they haven't missed the cold snap we've had back home, with a couple of inches of ice on the ground here just before we arrived. It's slowly warming up and we've managed to take some nice walks on the beach. Friends back home tell us that the mystery of some of those loud cracking sounds are not just our homes cracking in the big freeze. Guess there is such a thing called "frost quakes" in the ground. Go figure. Haven't heard any quakes around here though. Stay warm everyone!
