A Born Hoosier
I love Indiana when it's like this. Earlier this week, we had a grey, drizzly, windy, cold, dismal day. The average person would have thought I was crazy, but it was autumn in Indiana to me, and I was thrilled. Within another two days, the leaves had come out in their brilliant colors. Indiana is a crazy place; it's hot and horribly humid in the summer. The Ohio River Valley is the allergy capital of the world. Winters are rainy and gloomy, with an occasional crippling blizzard breaking up the monotony. And God help me, I love it.
