Y’all, we were planning to be in the tropics this time of year. I packed all the winter clothes and planned to send them off to storage in Idaho. When it looked like we’d be waiting at least until November to move, I quickly threw a few fall clothes into the suitcases staying with us in Oregon. October seemed to be unusually warm and the cold weather stayed away until we arrived in Idaho mid November. It was perfect timing, because our winter coats were waiting for us, safely stored away in boxes. The kids were thrilled to see snow one (or two or three, etc.) more times before we move. In the highlands of PNG the only snowflakes we’ll see are the paper ones created with our own hands.
