Not really what you would consider a heat wave, but it has been noticeably warmer than it was. For instance today it is a nice, balmy 14°F (that’s above zero). It is a very nice relief to have this much of an increase in temperature. I can actually go outside without my hat and gloves on and be fine. We also had quite a bit of snowfall yesterday, about 8 inches is the common consensus. That was quite beautiful to see everything covered in white fluffy snow. And it is fluffy… none of that wet, sludgy snow that I’ve heard is common in other areas. That’s about it to report for today other than the ongoing fact that I am extremely ready to come home.
