    Yesterday the kids were outside playing in shorts in 75+ degree weather. The airconditioner had to be turned on even. By the time we went to bed last night, the temperature was dropping rapidly. We turned on the heater, ran the humidifiers (we all have bad coughs), and awoke to 30degrees outside. BRRRRRR….
    It is now 37degrees and 45% humidity.

    Freezing – literally! Kenosha, WI was -7 at 9:00a with a windchill of -35. We’re in an urban area so the drifting snow isn’t too bad here. We have ice on the inside of some of our west facing windows. The pics are great – you are quite brave to go out in this. My boys would like to know how the horses handle the low windchill and do they want to go outside the barn even though its soooooo cold???

    We’re getting hit with our SECOND snowstorm in the last two days here in upstate NY! Love your pics, btw, they’re great! Esp the dog in the sweatjacket. :-P

    Actually, those pictures were taken last year. It is so bad today that the camera might be damaged if we took it outside. The horses are huddled up in their 3-sided building and the dogs are crowded together in the porch. It is up to negative 1 now and the wind has to be close to 30mph.

    well it’s in the high 50’s and sunny in Southern CA- but ya know the snow and horses are amazing! I would trade you for a while if I could hehe
    I would just have to buy a winter wardrobe (a real one)

    Thanks for following on Twitter- I’m a HS mom too

    When this was posted it was cold here in Missouri! (Though Ava tells me a tropical paradise compared to you.) Today it is 40 and very muddy out!!!

    Neat pictures! Horses are so brave to go through this every year outside. Liesl is simply adorable in her pink sweater! Always love seeing her in it! :D Looks like Helena knows how to dress for the weather! :)
