Oh that look
Photo-A-Day #1392

Eva and I hung out tonight. It was still a bit warm after work so I took her for a walk up the street and back to get her out of the house. That is one of the tough things about being in the Northeast (don’t get me wrong I love it here) and that is the weather. For the past few weeks the weather has been cold and crappy. This is the kind of weather that makes you want to come home, crawl into bed and hibernate. But today there was some sun and it melted much of the slush on the driveway. This however meant that the runoff from the melting snow needed someplace to go and the drains were pretty covered. That meant that the DPW had to come by with plows to scrape the snow off the street and fling it onto the sidewalks. They did this late int he day so now the sidewalks are treacherous.

So, back to our walk. I bundled Eva up and put her in the jogging stroller and headed up the street. It was colder than I thought and the snow that had melted all day was now freezing up. The sidewalks were full of snow and once we got to the end of our street there was no where for us to walk, safely. So I turned the stroller around and went back home. Once we got there we played int he backyard and I took today’s photos. If this kids smile can’t melt the frosty snow, I don’t know what can.

    I am soooooooooo jealous of your weather! Most days we wear short sleeves. At the most a long-sleeved shirt and a hoodie. Luckily it’s been in the upper twenties/low thirties in the mornings, so that’s nice. But it’s been warming up to 70 by noon.

    The last time it snowed here was Christmas Eve, 2004. We got a foot at our house. We love cold weather, but just never get it. Of course, living in south Texas, we don’t expect it, but hope and pray for it every year!

    There was so much snow over such a widespread area that it was called “The South Texas Christmas Miracle,” and three (that I know of) photo books were published with pictures that Texans submitted.

    I forgot to add that I’m loving your posts about Combinations. I clicked through a few of your links to read more about him. The interesting thing is that later on the first day you posted about him, I saw more about him somewhere else. Just can’t remember where.

    Tracye,
    I guess if I was in constant warm weather I’d ,miss the snow too. Plus I wouldn’t want my blood to get thin and find that if I came home I’d be so cold that I couldn’t enjoy it. I remember going to El Paso for work years ago and the roads were 107 at night. At night!

    Tracye,
    Thank very much. I am enjoying the heck out of the book and I love sharing stories with everyone. If you find out the post that you read about Ed I’d love to know it. Thanks.

    Eva is just adorable. What more inspiration do you need than that? Me I am missing summer! It’s so cold here and the cold and I just don’t get along.

    Baba,
    You are correct, there is no other inspiration I need to make those days better and brighter.
