January

We've been lucky this month, as far as the weather is concerned. Temperatures would bounce between the high 20's with gusty winds to the mid 60's and bright sunshine.


We've managed to get a bit of snow, too, though not enough to really slow anything down. Anything from a few 1/2 inch snowfalls (like the one this morning) to the 4" that fell one night and disappeared by the end of the day. And if you're keeping track, we've had approximately 40" of snow so far this season.




It's funny...though everyone has gotten used to the daily routines of school and work continuing in spite of the snow, it still manages to generate excitement. Not only from myself and the "Pickles", but also from the other children in the neighborhood and at their schools.


At The Boy's school, the plows scrape all the snow from the parking lot into one big mound that shrinks and grows with the weather and probably stays put until May or June. The Boy climbs all over it with his friends until I arrive to pick him up.


The mountain may not look like much now, but it's been sitting there since early December. In fact, a couple weeks ago it covered ALL the grass in the area and went up another three or four feet!
