It seems that New England has yet to get the ‘it’s spring’ memo and last week saw another snow storm hit. We were lucky, we only got seven of the predicted 12-18 inches of snow…
Rather bizarrely the snow promptly froze solid. A fellow blogger described it as having turned into snow bricks which was a very accurate description.
My seven year old had managed to mold some into a snow chair before it all froze, but apart from that, the options were limited.
What to do?
Snow angels of course.
The following day, with the sun shining, it was time to venture out into the garden again. The boys had friends over for play dates and the snow was melting a little. Well, it had softened a bit anyway! The wee girl was looking for something to do while her brothers were off playing with their friends.
Regular readers will know that my daughter loves painting in the snow. We generally use food dye mixed with water in squeezy bottles, but this time my little girl wanted to try painting with actual paint.
She chose a few colours and got to work.
There is still snow on the ground even now, a week later, but it is finally starting to melt. Yesterday saw a hint of spring in the air, with a lovely sunny afternoon, but the forecast for tomorrow is sub-zero again!
I don’t think I’ll pack away the snow gear just yet.
