There is just little pockets of snow on the ground in my neighborhood, our snowman is getting slimmer by each sunny and (warm) day! I knew when I moved back North I would experience some very cold days, and there is no doubt it is much colder here than the slightly cold and foggy days I grew up in off the coast of California. However, this winter in Minnesota has been a milder and calmer version of what they have experienced in former years.
My kids are not happy with the bare ground-cover! They want snow to play in, make snow angels and sled down the hill in the back yard, but this Momma is allowing the complaining.
We have had some snow-filled days, who knew their would only be enough to count on two hands! Ella has a healing scrape from a run in with a tree from her sledding straight into it the other day! We just expected the snow to maybe, stick around for more than a day or two. Who knew, but I won't complain about it. I am sure we have some snow packed days ahead of us, and I will take them in stride. I think the thinning snowman in the front yard would appreciate a cold snap and some moisture to help fatten him up again.
The 10-day forecast is giving us small percentages of snow....we will see when the next big storm arrives, probably the weekend we are out of town. Don't tell the kids!
