An "arctic blast" made its way through Connecticut. With temperatures below zero and several snowstorms to deal with, the kids' snow gear lived in our kitchen for quite some time. Just a walk to the mailbox required layers of clothing. Only the coldest of the cold days kept the kids inside.
And then it happened. A few days ago temperatures soared into the teens. And today - today we woke up to a world of fog and rain, with temperatures climbing above freezing, into the forties and beyond. In addition to rain, rapidly melting slow led to huge puddles and even flash flooding, causing a few accidents and a bit of damage when combined with intensely foggy conditions.
This warm-up seemed to have another victim, as evidenced by the photo below. Zachary melted - right there on the kitchen floor. The poor kid never had a chance.
