This has been the warmest winter I can remember. Sadly, this is an impressive showing of Snow.
Tom was too little last year to have enjoyed all the white stuff that covered our backyard, didn't have the hand-eye coordination to make snowballs, or the core strength to sit upright in a sled. This was going to be his year.
Not so much.
But, both Joe and Tom have been troopers - making snow angels in 1 inch of snow, pushing the snow around on shovels to reveal the grass (and mud!) underneath.
I should be happy that it's not -30C at the end of January. And I am. I just wish that we could have a little bit of snow.
