raw hermanion

greetings to the anderson family from the AmericInn in rochester, mn. I am in a tennis tournament down here at the Rochester Athletic Club. I won both of my matches last night(one of them by default) and I will play again today at 2. it is prett boring. I dont really enjoy tennis tournaments too much. but it is good for me, I guess. I have about three and a half hours until my match against harry whitely, so I should probably go read a book or something like that. well I hope that everyone has a good weekend and so on and so forth.

I love the snow so much. it is amazing.

Disney World


Joel asked me to post his montage of Disney pictures. We had a good time with Norris, although the weather got cold and rainy in the second half of the week.

Our favorite quote comes from a man on our bus pontificating about the wonders of Disney World to his fellow travelers: "I can't believe people who feel they have to visit Universal Studios when there's so much to do here. I ask them, 'Have you eaten in every restaurant? Have you urinated in every restroom?'"

Cold Day in Minnesota

Cold Day in Minnesota:

Temperatures plummeted across the eastern half of the nation Monday, approaching an all-time record in northern Minnesota and freezing the Gulf Coast as a river of Arctic air pushed southward.

Thermometers registered a low of 54 degrees below zero at Embarrass, Minn.

"You keep living, but it gets old after a while," said Christine Mackai, the town clerk for the community of about 1,400 people in northeast Minnesota.

Minnesota's record is 60 below, set on Feb. 2, 1996, in Tower, about 10 miles north of Embarrass.
