Yes, Mom, I think I understand now…..

“Winter” means that this freezing white stuff called snow falls from the sky.

But all our grass is still green and never dies….. Um, how does that work exactly?

Hmmm… that is a good question!

Thanks, Ailene, it’s one I have every winter here. :)

You have snow and green grass too?

Your boy is darling.

Hey Heidi! We have green grass in the Midwest also. It makes the winter a little more bearable to see that not everything is dead. Today it was -2 when we drove to church with a windchill of -23…I miss Arizona!

Lynne: Yes, isn’t that crazy? I grew up in Nevada where everything went absolutely dead and brown in the winter–so it always makes me laugh when everything’s still green despite the snow. Very strange!

Shanda: It’s green in Indiana, too?? With all those low temperatures and snow? That’s surprising!
