Bundling Up

Up here in Michigan, the snow has finally fallen, and it didn’t take long to cover the landscape frosty white. It was a record high 65 degrees this month, but things have changed back to normal unfortunately. The kids have been playing in the snow non-stop, and I’ve had to bundle them up before school to keep them warm every day this week. Down in Comstock Park, home of the West Michigan Whitecaps, Fifth-Third Ballpark is bundling up as well. The thermal blankets were put onto the field today, to protect the grass from snow and ice thrown at us the next few months. For me, April 4th can’t come soon enough. Maybe I can just go into hibernation after Christmas

Thermal blankets? Yeah, snow always sounds so romantic to this California girl…until you folks who get real weather start sharing the day to day details of living with it and then I’m thrilled to keep the snow as something I just visit from time to time. :)
I love the blog rennovation! Did MLBlogs finally get a few new backgrounds or is this something of your own design? And I really like the side bar additions…might even steal a few ideas. Keep warm Mike and enjoy yourself as best you can this offseason!

Kristen-I’m not complaining about the weather too much, yet. It can ALWAYS get worse up here! It’s supposed to be in the 50’s this weekend, so it might go away anyway. The theme is new from MLBlogs, and I love it, too! They did a great job with the background and color scheme. Hope both you and Seth have a great Holiday Season.

Winter is really a non event for us here is Southern California so it’s sounds crazy to me to have to put a blanket on your field but I guess that’s what you’ve go to do to protect it.

Yeah, winter is all but here in Michigan. The grounds crew does a great job of taking care of the field. Especially in early April when winter isn’t ready to leave yet…
