Snowmelt

Yesterday we drove up into the mountains to pick up Ethan, who spent the weekend at a winter retreat for middle schoolers.  We got there a little early, so Tristan and I walked around.  The big storms of a few weeks ago dumped a lot of snow on the mountain tops, but now it is quickly melting as we experience a midwinter heat spell.  In fact, it's so warm that we stopped for root beer floats on the way home, which tasted extra good in the warm sunshine.

Rained yesterday -- still not much snow melt. Now, back in the 20s. Don't you want to come and live where it really snows?

During a warm spell last month, when my wife and I were driving to the beach with our dog, I realized that as much as I really did love the snow the three years I lived in Indianapolis, I really do like living in Long Beach.

Build a snowman for me!
