Winter is here

After a surprise late October nor-easter, the weather here in New England has been downright spring like.  It was our first green Christmas in a while (and we mean green, the grass hadn’t even turned brown yet).

Alas, on Thursday January 12th we woke to our first snowfall since winter officially began back in December.

School did not get canceled, but the kids ran down, geared up, and went outside to play before the bus came.  They built our first snow duck.  They also came running in to report that the ducks had turned yellow (the snow being whiter than they are)…
