Spring continues to be slow in coming and we were greeted this morning with a couple inches of snow on the ground. That brings this season’s total to 66.1 inches of snow and the 8th highest cold season snowfall of the 104 years St. Cloud snow has been recorded. The last season with more snow was in 1978-1979, the year I was born, which exceeded this year by 0.8 inches. Adam took this picture at Saint John’s this morning.
The temperature today was predicted to reach the 40’s so we knew it wouldn’t stay around. We postponed the school day to play outside–after all, it is more fun to play in the cold with snow than just cold. The boys successfully built a snowman on their own with only a little help stacking the snowballs. Unfortunately, its life was short and it had collapsed before we even went inside. We also made a fun discovery. If you blow bubbles when it’s freezing outside the bubbles freeze, allowing you to bounce them with your hand in the air. They also sit on the ground without popping which makes a great game of bubble stomping.
Since this is the first time Sebastian has been able to sit well since we’ve had a good snow, he posed for a few pictures.
