We loved to wear our new snow boots.
Disclaimer: we did not build this snowman, just took a picture as we were driving around one day. It had to be at least 10 ft tall.
I would even say that we acclimated to the arctic temps. We consider it warm when the high reaches the 30s! For the most part, we loved our first winter in the Northland.
However, it is the end of March and we are longing for spring and all that comes with it – no snow, warmer weather, flowers, etc. We have seen glimpses of spring and with that comes hope. The snow is beginning to melt and we can see grass for the first time since November. There came a point where I looked out the window to see how quickly I could see the hill of rocks again. The days are getting longer and we are seeing more sunshine. In addition, we have hope because we survived our first winter, quite well I might add!
