That's nothing. Last year, we had our first snow in November and our last in May - here in the "warmest" city in Poland. It was almost -30 Celcius at night last year. It takes some time to get used to the temps and the lack of sunlight, but if you are homeschooling you can stay snuggled up in bed in the morning til the sun comes out. Another advantage. You can also welcome the kids back inside from "recess" with a cup of hot chocolate.
You're reading my mind, Chris, you're reading my mind.
I'm so sorry Olivia. Even Kansas winter is too much for me. You're not to far from the Mediterranean though!
