Baby It's cold outside!

It was a beautiful morning here in Colorado Springs! Perfect for getting all my errands done. Boy was I deceived. By 1:30 snowflakes started to fall. I thought they might slow down or stop.Wrong again. By now I still needed to drive across town to get home! Thanks to my practice in Idaho I made it home fine. One of Luke's co-workers brought him home. (We're sharing a car since I flew to Colorado for my visit.) We were just getting started on dinner when I remembered I left one of my bags from the store in the car. I looked imploringly at Luke hoping he might offer to run outside and get it for me. No such luck. I opened the door to go fast and at the shock of the cold I slammed the door again. I tromped back to the closet and got my big white jacket. Then I put on snow pants, mittens, and a hat.

Luke watched me from the window and chuckled.

The view from our apartment the next morning was beautiful.

We had tiny flakes New Years Eve. They melted on impact! Blame it on global warming.
We continue to pray for you both in the new year. It's fun to keep in touch through the blog.Blessings! Janice

I dash out to my car or to get the mail coat-less all the time. Who needs a coat for dashing?!?!

You would not believe the clothes Reid and Grant wore to school yesterday, and it was around 25 deg. F. Both boys wore jeans, short sleeve t-shirts, vans, short bootie socks and light weight hoodies. No gloves, no coats, no snow boots (and there is quite a bit out there). We are "true Idahoans" even if we live in Washington.
