Weird Winter

February 1, 2012


This has been such a strange winter. We’ve really only had three snows, and two of them were back before Christmas. We might see a little this weekend, but the past week we’ve had highs in the 60’s! It’s still rather cold in the mornings, so the protocol is: wear a winter coat in the morning and then no coat in the afternoon.

I saw two neighbor girls gleefully biking in shorts on Monday and giggling, “It’s supposed to be winter!”

‘It’s supposed to be winter’, winter. Get with the program.

I took this photo last week before the warm afternoons.

    60’s? I’m jealous! Winter here just arrived, and today the high is -4. Of course that is Celsius. Before this week it was just in the low 50’s and very cloudy and rainy every day.

    That snowman is AWESOME! It looks like a Calvin and Hobbes snowman. Was it made like that, or did it naturally melt that way?

      Thanks for the link! That was an excellent start to the day!

      I think they made it out of the pitiful pile of snow that was shoveled from their driveway. The last snow was a week or so ago and it was pretty pathetic.

    That snowman is hilarious! Reminds me a little of an octopus.

    And sorry the snow-octopus gets to wear a hat Brad.

    Is that a plastic carrot for a nose???
