What a treat we got today! Our first snow in years. It wasn't a blanketing snow or anything, but it was so fun to see. We went out for a little while to play in it, but with such low temperatures and high winds, it quickly became much too cold for us wimps to handle. We're going to have to re-adjust to the cold winter temperatures.
While living in Kansas nearly six years ago, we got quite used to cold and sometimes harsh winters. You never really forget that painful burning chill that hits your ears and fingers when the temperatures dip below freezing. Today we were quickly reminded that we are going to be needing some warmer jackets and winter clothing items. I've been making Hannah and Mallorie wear their light jackets under their winter jackets in the mornings when the temps are in the high twenties. Tomorrow morning it's only supposed to be 19. I don't remember the last time I felt that kind of cold!
