It is the 12th of January in New England. Most years by this time my kids are planning for their first ice fishing trip! The gear generally has been sorted, lines checked, jig sticks ready, food & water, hot cocoa mix & mugs, Coleman stove & propane, mittens & hand warmers, boots & wool socks ... all the stuff needed to ensure a fun and relatively warm day out on the ice!!
You'll never believe what the boys are doing today! All three of them are playing basketball with a few other guys at the park! OUTSIDE in t-shirts playing basketball.... it's unheard of! :) They are taking advantage of the 'warm' 40* (give or take) weather while they can!! The weathermen are predicting snow for Sunday night and plummeting temperatures for next week.... I suppose then they can start looking for the mittens & boots instead of sneakers and basketballs!
