Actually, it's warm today, or above freezing anyway, but we have more snow forecast for Tuesday, and even if Monday is as warm as today I don't think all the old stuff will melt before then. For the record, we've had snow on the ground continuously since before the winter solstice. Tomorrow is Imbolc or Ground Hog Day depending on how pagan you are. So yeah, and entire eighth of the year with snow.'
Jomkwan was looking forward to seeing snow for the first time so much this past fall. I recently asked her how she was liking it. Her response was that it was "crazy cold". It sure is. It has been a pretty bitter January on balance, and as usual Jomkwan doesn't let her lack of English vocabulary get in the way of expressing herself.
In other news, I love my boots. They're from LLBean, but it seems that they're not on the website anymore, which is a pity because I was just about to link to them with a glowing endorsement. In short, they kept my feet warm and dry last week when we had several inches of snow topped off with a good amount of rain, and they did it without being ugly or too heavy. You can't ask for more than that.
