Snow on Sunday, Nov. 10

The last “big snow” dropped less than an inch on our little corner of Iowa. By the above model, we should get around 2 inches tomorrow through Monday. Today? The skies are blue and the temps are in the mid-50s. Really beautiful weather, perfect for the kids playing together.

We’ve run into some troubles however. The children are just too cold when they’re outside, which means less fun and less time outside and with their friends.

We’re finding that layering is really important.

  • Base layer
  • Fleece
  • Sweaters
  • Snowpants
  • Multiple hats and ear muffs
  • Multiple gloves
  • Scarves

Don’t be afraid to search expensive sites for good deals. You can sometimes find high-quality items for pennies on the dollar, (but you won’t find them if you never look. 😉 )
