Defying Winter

Two days ago (literally) here is marvelous Pennsylvania it registered a high of 81 degrees, was breezy, beautiful and my son got so hot he changed into shorts in the middle of an impromptu game of street kickball.

We had an amazing day involving the park, lots of friends, rolled down car windows and the like. Even Mr. Clean soaked up the bliss by emerging from his home
office and planting himself on the front porch with his bluetooth and laptop. By supper time there were about 15 kids on my street playing kickball of all ages and abilities and it was almost Norman Rockwell perfect.

Today? Rain, freezing rain, sleet, snow and more freezing rain. In that order. It is currently 27 degrees and the birds in the neighborhood have no clue what to do with themselves.

Even the dog is depressed...

But the best snub at the weather I have ever seen was my sweet little Xena happily defying the elements...
