It’s 1/1/2019, 5:51 pm and I am sitting at home at my desk with the wind howling and temperatures falling – perfect for snowmaking and skiing. However I will not be enjoying the fine weather conditions in New England but instead will be heading to the semi-tropical oven-hot, dry and snowless terrain of Central America. That may sound good to you, but since this is my blog you don’t get a say; I will suffer through mid-eighties and sunny every day, hoping and knowing that better weather is just 10 days away. In the meantime, I will be with a group of veterinarians and students in Nicaragua with Oscar and Tamy as we hope to help some people and animals as well as spread some cheer to people who live in this inhospitable climate. This will be my 5th trip to this area and I am always Blessed by the journey, even though you wouldn’t know it by reading this. But since you are here and reading this, I might as well be honest and share it with you. So come on back if you want as I will write a daily blog, and share it as long as the internet stays up and running. But please don’t rub it in that you are having much better weather conditions, cause that will just make matters worse.

Blessings from Ashburnham
