  1. Aww, thank you! It’s sad to say I’ve never seen real snow “in real life”! We get maybe an inch or two every five years or so, but I don’t think that counts, as it doesn’t stick.

  3. And over here in Southern Ontario, the snow is completely melted and it’s hovering at about 5 degrees above freezing! What a weird winter…

  8. Lisa: Glad you enjoyed it. 72F is 22 degrees C – lovely May/June temperatures round here!

    Crayonz: Actually, that picture shows our teeny front yard (yes, that heap of snow is our “yard” in its entirety). The street was pretty bad when that picture was taken, but the snow removal guys went through again yesterday, and it’s nice and clear once more. Our yard, however, looks just the same!

    Haley: That picture was taken a couple of days before it was posted. Yesterday was a very melty day, and today’s forecast high is SIX!! There goes more snow! (Wahoo!) (6C = 43F)

    Weird winter, indeed. In Ottawa, I’ve become accustomed to three solid weeks of -30 temps in January. (That’d be -22 for you measurement regressives to the south.)

    Jen: We’re getting close to those temperatures this week. It’s freakily mild out there – and I love it! So do the kids, because it makes for “packy snow” – most of the time in January, it’s too cold to make snowmen. (Ooo – more picture ops!)

    Angela: Yes, indeed. They love to romp and roll in the snow. That heap in my front yard will keep them happy for a looong time. Till my toes get numb from all the vigorous standing around I’m doing, and I call them inside.

    Kimmyk: Nah, I don’t think any of them are allowed to watch that yet. LOL It’s all “I’m the king of the castle, and you’re the dirty rascal!” Remember that one?

  9. We have weird weather as well. Usually by this time, we’ve hit freezing at least once or twice but not this year.
