We had a very wintery winter this year. In January, we had weather so cold that we had wind chill warnings. The coldest temp was -17F with a -40F windchill. We missed 3 days of school because of the cold weather. Also, even though we have had 56 inches of snow (46 inches is the average), through the end of February, we’ve haven’t had a major snowstorm. That 56 inches fell pretty much an inch or two at a time! The snowplow drivers must have been exhausted because it was about every other day for a while there. The cities are all running out of road salt, too!
It’s a good thing spring is coming and we got a glimpse of it yesterday, with temps that reached into the high 50s! I loved being outside with only a fleece and not needing a hat or mittens! Sarah and I took Jasmine to her favorite walking spot at the bridle trails on the south side of Sheboygan.
The snow was really soft, though, and hard to walk on. It was similar to walking on dry sand on the beach. Jasmine and I both worked hard!
We even turned off the furnace and opened up the windows for 2-1/2 hours yesterday, too. I loved getting fresh air into the house.
