Then and Now and Rain in Winter

One year ago on this day, here we were.
I'm behind the camera, but there are those guys jumping. Incidentally, this is one of my favourite photos from last year.
It was a cold, frosty day. Glorious in the sunshine.
Do you see the snow? It didn't go away for a very long time. And we got more - way more!
A year later (today, that is), I was on playground duty at lunch time.
The sun sort of shone and it was very mild. Something like 10 degrees.
The field was like a sponge that's been sitting in water for a very long time. Grade two girls played in puddles. I would play in puddles too, if I had blue rubber boots.
Even on a day without rain, little children think we need to carry umbrellas all the time. That's what comes of living in a place where the sky constantly drips.
It has rained an awful lot this winter.
Will winter kick in? Will snow ever fall on us again? Will there be enough for the Olympic events? Most importantly, will we get any snow days this year?
Little children want to know!
And so do their teachers.

A 'snow day' on the day of the Opening Ceremony or alternatively, of the ice hockey finals, would probably be top of the requests, I'm sure! :)
