It Is Officially COLD!

Yesterday when we left at 10am to go to play group the temperature was a whopping 8 degrees. Daniel had complained as I hadn't bothered to put his gloves on him and he wanted to wear them. As we were getting in the car (which is a process with two young children) he of course started playing in the snow, which of course made his hands freezing cold, shich meant that he was screaming all the way to play group. I had dried his hands and pulled his sleeves down over his hands but of course with it being 8 degrees it took them awhile to warm up. Lesson learned yesterday- When Daniel wants to wear his gloves let him. It did warm up that afternoon to 38 degrees for an hour or two but then quickly dropped back down to 28.

Something else I found out yesterday is that instead of using salt to melt the snow here they use gravel to give you traction. This is fine on the roads but have you ever pushed a double shopping cart in a parking lot on snow that has been heavily graveled? Let's just say it was hard work for Mom and a bouncy ride for two kids.
