Winter Weather

For the past six years, I have wintered in a perpetual state of snow.

Nowadays, since moving back to my hometown four hours away in southwest Missouri, the winter weather is much more sporadic. Rainy low 30s one day, sunny high 60s the next. Bundled in my winter coat one day…

Snow that stuck through the day. Snow that built snowmen and was tossed during snowball fights all afternoon. Snow that has intrigued my cat and left my puppy grinning from ear to ear.

While, I’m glad to not have 18 inches in my backyard anymore…

I am happy to have gotten a fun dose of winter weather. Now bring on the Spring! My bulbs are simply dying to bloom!
