Nebraska weather is so weird

I don't know if I'll ever get over how different the weather is here compared to Scotland. Especially how fast the weather can change!

A few days ago we were playing in the yard in the snow, sledding down the hill with coats and gloves and hats. We had to come in after a short while because it was so cold our hands were swelling up and getting red.

Today the snow is gone, the sun is shining. It says it's 50 degrees but it sure feels hotter. We've had to take our coats off outside because it's too darn hot. We're going for extra drinks of cool water and playing outside.

For Scotland, it takes half a year to reach the temperature extremes we've reached in the span of 4 days. I love it! Keeps you on your toes.

We have a week of heavy snow from Russia, of ALL PLACES, predicted so you enjoy that Nebraskan sun!
