We have been having a great deal of snow and freezing (hard freezing, not piddling around with 30 degree days, but right down towards zero. I don't know, I really don't).

This means that there are some odd moments, such as when we go to the park on a lovely day, and the lake is still frozen solid.

*I know it's February, but the unseasonably warm days weren't.
