A Beautiful Spring Day in January

Today January 6th 2007 it was 68 degrees outside in Massachusetts. Alex and I spent a few hours playing outside with neighborhood kids. He showed me a number of techniques for relocating water by jumping in giant puddles of mud. Later he moved a big pile of wet sand about two feet left. We played on the swing-set and barbecued hamburgers for lunch. Later that afternoon, while Alex napped, Conner and I went out for a walk and hung out with some more neighbors. We were outside for an hour in jeans and a sweatshirts. It was a beautiful day to be outside.

Tonight we noticed that it was warm in the house. The heat has been off all day and its 73 degrees inside. If I didn't know better I'd think it was May.
