A Year Ago: Icy

A year ago, the weather pictures I posted on Facebook were these ones according to Timehop (which by the way is a cool program, go check it out). Clearly it was icy and cold- snow was on the ground.

Today we have rain—lots and lots of it. I am LOVING this winter weather. I mean, I’d prefer 70s/80s  Winking smile but if it’s a choice between rainy and 50s or freezing cold/snow/ice…I will take what we have. This is the first winter that we’ve spent an immense of time outside—biking, taking walks to the park—it’s absolutely crazy. Yesterday after school the older two kids played outside for a good hour and a half while the baby and I cleaned. It was over 50*!

At the beginning of January the kids and I took a trip to the park and the sun was going down. I took this picture. The pond wasn’t even frozen all the way through, and the fact we were at the park in January in and of itself was unreal.

We also found dandelions popping up around the neighborhood. It’s a strange winter, my friends.

  1. Gosh, this year's winter has been strange, huh! Here in Kansas, we've been having mostly 40s and 50s - even some 60s! - with hardly a day that's truly been winter. That's okay with me, haha! But we were sure glad to finally see rain a couple days ago. We're in such a drought the past couple years. Maybe we will still see winter since February's just getting started and there's still March to go through. :D

    1. I hope not! It's crazy, even though we haven't had a ton of snow, I am still longing for warm weather! I miss it.

  2. Oh my gosh, we have dandelions all over our yard. It's sooooo weird. I feel like we went from summer directly to spring. Fall and winter have been non-existent!

    1. We had a nice fall, I think. I honestly don't remember...that's sad!
