Winter In Cape Cod/ Door County

The winters vary in severity. One winter you will get 3 snowstorms and in-between it will be 40, 50, dare I say 60 degrees? Other winters it is bitter cold with tons of snow, no snow, and any other combination you can possibly think of. What is the deal? Well they say that the warmer than usual  Northern Pacific Ocean this winter will cause a cold snowy winter in the Northeastern U.S. That means I am in trouble. I live in Rhode Island now.

Door County has already seen its first snow of the season and with the wind off of Green Bay All of Door County is down right bone chilling even in 40 degree weather with all that moisture in the air.

I took a few chilly photos in down town Sister Bay.
You won't be sailing today.

 Sunrise is pretty!

 Sometime you need get started on your snow fort early. A dusting of snow won't stop us from having some fun.

New to Town: The Move! Sister Bay

Who would have known a PT Cruiser had so much room? I moved everything we owned from a storage unit just outside Sister Bay to our new abode. Sure, it only took me twenty trips or more! I wasn't really counting. However, with a little patience we were moved in and ready to start our little Door County adventure, beyond our tent. In our tent it had seemed like it would rain on us everyday. Now, four days of sunshine since our move.

Ellie has started her school year with some pre- service training and prep work. Monday she was invited to dine with the school board and other leaders at Gibraltar. She walked away with peace of mind. She told me folks have a pretty good sense of humor and were pretty pleasant. I am about a week into my new job at Good Samaritan. It is a neat place to be. Due to HIPPA laws I can't really talk in detail about the folks I work with or the people I serve. That is fine by me.

Our little tikes are settling in. Aidy and Lee-Lee were going a bit stir crazy camping for a month. The day we moved in and they saw all there toys was kinda crazy. They were excited and pretty happy to see all their stuffed animals, trains, cars, and you name it. Momma needed a break after a few hours of the manic energy, but she managed to keep the peace.

Something crazy happened. All of a sudden Liam and Aiden can ride a trike like its nothing. When we left Boys Town in Rhode Island they couldnt steer and could barely peddle without getting frustrated. Now they are pros peddling and sterring with ease. Without really any practice since those scenes of frustration a month or so ago. I suppose something just clicked in their minds. Maybe all the pent up energy caused them to try harder, and let go of fears.

Now we are set with a nice roof over our heads. The downside is we have to move in 9 months. I do not look forward to that, but we may be ready to purchase a home. I don't want to camp for 3 months next year. I say that now, but we may, who knows!
