I know that some of our family up north has been dealing with snow, blizzards, closed roads, and other severe sorts of weather. Well, we've been really windy... Seriously, that's the best I can do. There are some grass fires that are pretty bad. I can see the smoke out my window at work and the dry, warm, and very windy conditions don't help the people fighting those at all. Sure, we could use some moisture, but considering Rhiannon and Brooklynn are home on spring break right now, it's nice they can go outside each day.
Brooklynn loves to be outside. More like LOVES. We have to spell works like W-A-L-K and speak in hushed whispers to discuss plans for the next day that might include a P-A-R-K. Say the word playground in our house, regardless of the time of day, and you will get a pair of shoes handed to you and toddler standing by the door, waiting to go. Cold, windy, middle of the night? Who cares, let's go!
So, Rhiannon and Brooklynn have been playgrounding all week long, even with the wind. Frankly, if we had snow on the ground for an entire winter, I'm not sure what we would do with the tiny person in our house. Maybe she would actually learn to like snow instead of it being that "weird white cold stuff that I do not like".
