We had about three weeks of a fair amount of snow around Christmas. Lately, we have been experiencing our usual January thaw with mild temperatures and quite a bit of rain. Despite all of the melting, the snow is still piled deeply where it was thrown with the earlier snow removal. At a certain point in this region, the snow stays all winter no matter how warm the weather gets.
Anyway, the main benefit of the recent mildness has been that the streets thawed. They have been rutted and atrocious to drive on for almost a month now. The next weather wave to hit us will be a cold spell although we may not go into a huge freeze.
What all of this means is that we are mostly confined indoors these days. We wanted to take JJ tobogganing as we did his sister a week or two ago, but I think we'll have to wait for more snow, which is not in even the long range forecast right now.
Last week, JJ made a crown at Storytime, and Danica felt hard-done-by when she got home. So, Amma helped her to construct quite a jeweled crown the next day. As you can see in the photos, she also had her nails done. no wonder Mom calls her, "My Girly Girl."
