Cold ShockPosted: September 12, 2014
Yesterday we had a 30 degree swing in temperature overnight. The cold weather stuck around today and the weekend won’t be much warmer. Yep, it’s fall!
I had to reach back in my brain for how to dress, balancing the fact that we needed to bike somewhere but biking with kids is considerably slower than biking by myself. For the goblins, I was really proud of them. After an initial shock (it’s cold Daddy!) they warmed up to the idea of being out in the cold. We ran a few errands but then played at the park for two hours at a windy 45F.
In fact, I was the one who gave in first. Since I was sitting down and reading, the wind started to cut through my layers, and I’d forgotten to bring gloves. One of these days I’ll even get gloves that let me work the Kindle.
Winter, with its even colder temperatures, salt, snow, and slush is its own beast – but I think yesterday was a good indication of how we’ll weather it.
