Last year my mom gave Sweetheart G a Field Guide to Snowflakes. So, now that Christmas is done, and we are soaking up the last week before school begins, I've sat down to identify the different flakes I photographed during our record breaking snowfall. (Yes, I am this kind of geeky person.) (And yes, if you are still recovering from snow induced shock, you may want to look away.)
We are still in the midst of family time and fun meals. Our snow has given way to heavy cold rains, and while I am thrilled to walk miles in the snow, walking in 39 degree rain leaves even me chilled.
So here we are, the day after. The festivities continue merrily along, although I'm not sure my pants can take much more calorie ladened fun. Grandpa D, Grandma K, and Auntie Eva are due in from California later today. The snow and ice continues to melt, and I am afraid that floods will be the next adventure ahead. For the moment, it is a lovely sunny day and I am hoping to get a walk in this morning
Hmmm... what to talk about.. um.. how about the weather?
