Wintry Mix

That has been our weather forecast for much of the last few weeks. And I am sick of it. A little rain, a little sleet, maybe some snow, then some freezing rain, then some regular rain to make it all messy. This morning the surfaces are covered in a very thin sheet of ice. The rain is coming.

We need some real weather! When we moved from Oregon (where we got one good snowfall every year or two) we told our kids we'd have snow! In our yard! More than once per winter! But no. Last year we had a morning to sled down a hill at a nearby church. That's it.

OK, I know winter starts today and there's a long way to go, but... it's hard to be optimistic. Especially when the people living in my old house in Oregon have had days and days of sledding down their (my!) hill!

I am not done with the Christmas songs, but have been busy baking, and watching A Christmas Story, and complaining about the weather.

I'd really like to complain about the weather, but by the time I decide what to complain about, it changes.

We've had an unusual amount of wintry weather so far this year in my area. Everything from flurries, sleet, freezing rain, and snow - 4-5 inches this past week. It's 16 degrees and falling outside right now.

we've had tons of rain in NC this winter, would love a little snow, too.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

Yes, it was snowing like crazy! But we decided we weren't that into snow after about the third day. Mostly my kids were put out that church kept getting canceled. Now the ground is back to brown and green and life gets back to normal...
