Hee Hee

My daughter asked me early this morning, "Mom, why are all the roofs in the neighborhood bluish white?  Where did all the brown roofs go?" At the moment I was preoccupied and thought she was dreaming things.  Later, after the sun had been out for a bit, she looked out the window again and said, "What is all that wet stuff??"  I looked where she was pointing and I burst out laughing, "That's FROST!!"  LOL  We have true desert kids.  I am reminded of Emily two years ago stating, "I hate trees!"  Poor little souls! ...But just about the time I want to be rescued from this hot desolation, I remember the finer points about living in the desert.  Being unfamiliar with frost is one of them!

  2. You guys need to come up here for a fieldtrip and unit study on Winter. I'm sure you can write it off as educational expense.

  3. Good try, Mr. weatherman.

    A couple days ago, it was -13 with wind chill factor of -32. Good ol' dependable Midwest.

  4. Trees are undesirable for a number of reasons.


    1. Leaves that need raking in the fall.

    Raking in a yard of rocks would really be a non pleasurable outdoor activity. Ranks right up there with mowing grass.

  6. That is too funny about the frost!


    I don't know if I'll be around much next week, so I just wanted to stop by and say that I pray that your family has a WONDERFUL Christmas and a very blessed new year!


    Love,

  8. Man I'd trade the frost for the freezing rain we got (lost power for 68 hours - out side temps were between 20 - daytime, and -4 night time) followed by not one but 2 snow storms that left us with a combined snow fall of 3 feet!!! Our dog is tunneling outside to go "Potty" And she is a 65 pound lab!! How about a field trip! I keep looking at my list of "Why I love NH". Have a wonderful Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year - May you find peace, love, joy, laughter and forgiveness in all you do. Lynn Marie
