My Neck Of The Woods This Winter

Mama’s Losin’ It

This is such a different winter for me and the boys. We’re used to having snow from November until the end of April (at the earliest). The snow piles up, it’s white for months, and we live with a shovel by the front door. Well, we did until we moved to Maryland.

It’s “snowed” twice here. We’ve heard that snow was going to come on other occasions, but it never showed up. Hints of snow or snowflakes falling here, people do a bit of panicking; schools consider closing and have closed, people clear shelves of food and drink, many people just don’t go anywhere. Really, it just cracks my boys and I up.

This is what it looks like here on January 9, 2014

Winter Tree

Here’s what we’re used to around this time of year:

Deep snow

 

That picture was taken at the beginning of December 2012. lol

Here it’s been a balmy 40-50 degrees. When my daughters came out for Christmas it was in the high 60s and they brought shorts. hahahaha I think our senses are a bit out of whack because it feels like an extended Minnesota fall because we’re not used to these temps at this time of the year.

How has your winter weather been? Have you ever made a move that was as weather drastic as this?

The Prompts:

1.) Find a photo of yourself taken 10 years ago and display it on your blog along with a current photo. How have you changed since the day that photo was taken?
2.) Write a blog post inspired by the word: dog house.
3.) List 8 things you think people forgot how to do.
4.) A childhood toy you once loved.
5.) Show us what winter looks like in your neck of the woods!

You are welcome to have some of our snow and cold here in Wisconsin if you like - I'll totally trade you!

We've been in the throes of that winter blast. Today it was a balmy 40 degrees. But luckily we aren't usually so cold.

We've gotten a lot more snow and cold weather than we're used to recently. Our daughter is loving it! I'm not so crazy about snow. We're in Canada though so it goes with the territory. :)

It has bean unseasonably warm here too. My kids keep asking when Christmas is coming because it can't possibly be Christmas without the snow.

I love snow--love it! It magically arrived with Christmas, but until that point I was in withdrawal. Shorts at Christmas just doesn't seem right. I am with the kids on that!

We've had some strange weather this winter, and a decent amount of snow. Although I would much rather have your 40's and 50's than the single digits we just finished.

You will also find, in warmer areas, that people don't know how to drive when it snows. It is not fun being on the roads.

We haven't had much snow here yet either. Not sure if it's coming, but I'd like it to make at least a FEW appearances!
