It's December 7, 2011. I am in Massachusetts. It is 52 degrees out. What in the world?!
My husband said, "This is going to be a warm winter!" My brother-in-law said, "Farmer's Almanac said we're going to have a very snowy winter!" We'll see.
A mama I know is trying to graph the weather to show how November and December are the cold months. It's not working out so well. After saying, "So, are November and December warm or cold months?", they responded with, "WARM!", very emphatically.
All I know is that it's raining and my kids were out there having a blast. Let your kids out, in the rain, to play in the mud. It's good for them. And it gives you a moment's peace before you need to mop the floor, do some laundry and give baths.
