The no-jacket January
Much to the dismay of my snow-loving boys, we haven’t had much of a winter around here. Last year at this time we were up to our elbows in snow. The complete absence of frozen white stuff has left a gaping January hole, one that is usually filled with sledding, tunneling, shoveling, frozen-lake-walking, and icicle-licking.
But even the kids couldn’t be too upset this week when it got warm enough to pull out the bikes and roller blades. I took advantage of the same good weather to clean out the car and sweep out the garage. When I was finished, I pulled out my iPhone, just to check the temperature. Fifty-five degrees!
We may never see it again, but for the record, I’m not complaining.
