It’s freezing outside today.
It’s also blowing which makes it feel even colder.
Like -12 degrees cold.
It also snowed last night.
Everything is covered in about 3 inches of snow.
It’s really pretty…until you go outside.
Even the birds are trying to stay warm today.
So with the below freezing temperatures plus the wind, we’ve decided to spend as much time indoors today.
I’ve been organizing a lot of photographs I’ve shot over the last 6 months or so.
Man, I take a lot of pictures.
Anyway, I was looking at some photos from two weeks ago when it snowed just before Christmas.
Banks does not have snow boots, but the temperatures were warm enough that we just had to get him in the snow.
So what do you do when your kid doesn’t have snow shoes?
If you’re me, you improvise and use plastic grocery bags from a recent shopping trip.
Banks didn’t seem to care much about what he had covering his feet.
He just thought the snow was pretty cool.
When we set him down on the snow he decided to take off and explore.
He’s a pretty independent little guy.
Banks, be careful!
A face full of snow didn’t seen to phase him though.
In fact, he went out past the tractor tracks–with the help of his daddy.
We didn’t stay outside for very long.
In fact, when we said it was time to go inside, Banks tried to get away.
I guess the kid thought that wearing two layers of socks, two layers of pants, two layers of shirts, mittens, beanie, jacket, shoes, and his double bags on each foot deemed him extra time outside.
Who would’ve thought a double layer of plastic grocery bags tied to a kid’s legs would make a little boy so happy?!?
Necessity is the mother of invention. Looks like he had fun.
He’s lucky I didn’t have any zip ties in the area 🙂
I also really liked your bird photo! Beautiful!
I love this post. The hilarious Angry Bird and your wonderful invention, ha! I also love that you guys are fellow Kstate fans. We are freezing here too. Got to -5 overnight. Totally pinning this, it’s too fun not to!
Thank you for the nice comment! It was very cold here today again. My students kept checking the weather bug to see how much it warmed up outside today–if you can call a -5* to 12* change a “warm up”. Of course, that’s not including the wind!! Stay warm in your neck of the woods!
They delayed my son’s school for 2 hours just for the cold. That was unusual. Supposed to be warmer this week but rain is coming, hope it’s not freezing rain!
I just hope the wheat is ok. These temperatures can easily kill it off. I guess time will tell.
You know, I hadn’t thought about the wheat. Maybe it will help there was still snow on the ground?
