January Thaw

Yep, that's my baby, standing up where he can touch the roof. It's January 8, and it's a whopping 46 degrees at 4:00 in the afternoon. I haven't burned a stick of wood all day, and my kids are playing outside in T-Shirts. Brian and Dustin don' even have ski pants on, I'm guessing Brian will change pants when he comes in, he's drenched.

For those of you who read this and are not in Maine, I should clarify the snow is only so high because my husband shoveled it off our roof. He likes to ensure I can't see out my windows. He knows how much I like the sight of snow.
This is slightly more indicative of our actual snowfall.
Our Christmas tree has been re-purposed. We like to think green here.
Our barn/woodshed.
Our mail box. The town did actually come clean it out for us after I took this photo. I mean clean the snow from around it, not plow it into oblivion. They've done that to somein our area. It still tilts back like that, I have to reach down in for the mail. No changing it now, it's frozen in solid for awhile.
Happy January.

SO did most of the snow disappear with the thaw. I was watching a football game today and it was snowing on it. And I was thinking how can that be it is way to warm outside. I guess that means I have been out of the state too long.

Love the pictures! My comment is that while I was putting pics on the frame J & T gave me, I noted with suprise as they roll along throughout the day that I have remarkably a lot of nice pics of Brian with a big smile. The one I am lacking is Michael, he seems to avoid the camera pretty well. Put this in the for what its worth bin. Mom

I always try to complain to Jackie or Carol about our snow and then I have to remember who I'm talking to . . . The pictures really help put it in perspective!
