the long winter

It has been a long winter here at the Metzger house. Last week, when it finally got a little bit warm, we opened the windows like it was spring and enjoyed the cold, but very refreshing, air. Elias abandoned his carrot for the snow outside the window.

We've not been able to play outside much because of the frigid temperatures. Last week when it was a bit warmer, we got out as much as we could. The snow was too deep to play in but we took some nice long walks and found a few puddles to splash in.

For reference, the snow piles at the end of the lane are as tall as me.
