This has not been a long winter, in fact it's been very, very brief. It's like one of those towns that people make fun of...'if you blink as you drive through, you'll miss it.' That defines our winter this year, I blinked and nearly missed it. It hasn't been terribly cold, except for a few days. It certainly hasn't been super rainy, and when it is everyone is happy about it because we need the moisture. Yet, today I find myself grateful for the warmth we are experiencing today. As I ran errands a little bit ago my temperature gauge for outside hit a pleasant 69 degrees. Yes, it feels great!
I do feel badly for those who have been hit with snow today...wish you were visiting us here! :)
