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