This is Casey…
As Margaret has mentioned… It is COLD up here in these parts. The Polar Vortex has hit us hard and some of us can’t imagine the end of snow in site. And if you haven’t looked at the calendar lately, it is March. This means: Find stuff to do outside with snow and ice or you will lose your ever lovin mind.
Last weekend, my SHMM (Sexy Hunk a Man Meat) and I went to his parents house to enjoy some snowshoeing and cross country on the lake. The sun was out, it was frigid cold and the ice was everywhere.
The key to enjoying the great outdoors in this weather is the right outerwear. Do not go outside with cheap gloves and mittens. Not worth it. And for the sanity of everyone in your life, do not give your kids crappy gloves, mittens, socks, long underwear, hats and face covers. It’s not worth it. Your kids will be miserable. Your kids will hate you. You will hate your kids. And anyone that can hear them screaming about how cold they are will hate all of you.
SHMM! What a stud!
What do you do during the LONG winter months to not go bat-shit-crazy?
