With all the rain and gloom it has been a tough winter. One of the toughest aspects of the weather has been that no one has wanted to play outside. It feels like we have all been cooped up together in the house all winter. But in the last week with the return of cold weather all that has changed for the better. The kids have been getting home from school and rushing outside to go sledding or build snow forts. And today since it is the weekend we plan on taking a ski excursion.
The cold weather has created ocean effect snow at our end of town as the humid air off of the ocean cools on land and falls as snow. Every day we get an inch or so of snow even as the sky stays mostly sunny. At the other end of town out towards the airport there is very little snow. Patrick
