The last few days have been warm and sunny. I took the boys to the river and it was so warm that Zane put his toes in the water. Our shirts were short sleeved. We had a picnic and played outside all afternoon.
Then over night weather turned cold. They issued a severe weather warning and we were expecting ice, snow, and sleet. Before a single flake fell, all area schools closed. At first we had only ice, but the wind cut so harshly that we stayed inside most of the day, sipping hot chocolate. After dark the ice turned to fluffy white snow. We woke to a white blanket over the earth. I had to dig into closets and find snow boots, mittens, and hats.
Two days ago I was lying in the sun beside the river in a short sleeve shirt with my feet in the water. It was 70 and sunny.
Today we are sledding on a foot of snow when we are not hiding from the cold with hot chocolate!
Tonight the low will be below 0 with a wind chill!
What a drastic shift! How quickly the weather turns
