Now that it is officially Spring, I thought I would look back on this just completed Winter Season.Overall, for those of us who actually want the Winter to be cold and fairly wet, it was an ok season. There really was no major outbreak of severely cold weather or lengthy stays under freezing,

However compared to last year, (the winter of 2011-2012) it was a lot cooler and a little rainier. If you remember a year ago, we almost did not have any winter, with temperature well above normal and very dry.

The highlight of this Winter just completed had to be the Christmas Day snow!!! We can now relate to the song, " I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" just like the ones I used to know.

It was a delight to see the kid's reaction when it actually started to snow on Christmas day and their excitement when it began to stick. It was a good snow, although it could have been more, I was able to play in the stuff with the children for several days and since it was Christmas break and no school it was a blast.

Here's hoping for even more snow and colder weather for Winter 2013-14. Now get ready for the triple digit heat of Summer, it will be here before you know it.
