Our Journey Raising Two Children with Special Needs

This blog chronicles our life raising two children, Nicholas 14, diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome and Weston 17, diagnosed with Autism/Asperger's/ADHD. It's the ups, the downs, the joys, the sorrows and most importantly, the beauty of living a life less perfect, a life more meaningful.

2° F

This morning it was 2° F outside, with a wind chill of -15°F.

It has been a very dry winter here in New England with very little snow accumulation. We can measure our current total snow fall in inches rather than feet, a very unusual phenomenon for this neck of the woods.

The boys have been waiting patiently for the first major nor'easter of the season. But with each passing weather system, we receive  either rain or just a few inches of snow. 

Kinda makes for a very boring winter. When you add single digit temperatures, native New Englanders can become downright hostile, especially since everyone has been cooped up inside for the last 3 days.

But there is no one I pity more, than dear ole Hubby.

He is an HVAC mechanic, who works on large commercial heating equipment in Boston.

Just picture what it must feel like to work on the roof of one of these buildings when there is a wind chill measurement of -15!
