After some hotter than summer days, we are back to more normal weather. However, people living from the midwest United States to the east are dealing with FREEZING weather. Can you even imagine having to:

  • Scrape ice off your car windshield every morning
  • Dig your car out from under several feel of snow every morning
  • Having busses not running because there’s too much snow on the road
  • Getting dressed every day with hat, boots, mittens, scarf, and jacket
  • Not losing your hat, boots, mittens, scarf and jacket at school
  • Having your pipes freeze, then burst at home so you’re without water!
  • Being stuck in your house since it’s not safe to go out.
  • Trying to avoid having icicles fall on you.
  • Trying not to slip and break a bone as you walk on icy sidewalks
  • Shoveling snow off your roof so your roof doesn’t collapse!

We are spoiled!
