I spent two years of college in Vermont. The snow started in October and stayed around until the big thaw in the spring known as “mud season.” Here in Pittsburgh, it’s different. Friday we had a beautiful snowfall. On Saturday and Sunday we played in the snow. Monday, it rained and was icy. Today, it’s warm and muddy.
I put on our mud gear and took the kids out for a walk in the park. I kept them out of the big puddles until near the end of our walk. It’s warm for January but it’s not warm enough to be wet outside and happy.
