For a decent snowy winter this year:
Evidently it normally doesn’t snow around here until Christmas, so we were quite surprised to see this when we awoke this morning! The kids got to make one quite meager snowball each before going off to daycare. It’s supposed to turn to rain later, so I warned them not to get too excited.
Last year’s winter was mostly just cold and muddy: not much fun and hard to find ways to get the kids outside. We’re praying for a nice cold, snowy winter (in moderation, of course, knock wood!)
Maybe it’s just the California girl coming out in me, but I can’t imagine becoming tired of snow. I know certain grandparents of ours have fled the cold winters, and maybe if I’d lived here for most of my life I’d feel the same. But right now I simply marvel at my luck to live somewhere with such beauty.
