Well, after an unusually mild fall and late 2015; not to mention a very ‘warm’ Christmas and New Year, winter has found us – with vengeance.
I can understand the snow-lovers wanting lots of it for their winter sports and fun, but folks this is ridiculous! We had approximately eight inches of snow a few days ago, plus another foot or so last night.
Yes, it’s pretty to look at if you are snug as a bug indoors (which fortunately, I can choose to be until tomorrow), but for those who have to go out for work in this white bombardment it is anything but fun.
Children, nevertheless, are delighting in another snow day. Parents not so much, if they work and need to scramble to find safe places for their children during the day.
I loved this fluffy, white blanket when my sons were young. We have many memories of tobogganing and skating in the great cold outdoors. Frozen noses and eyelashes thawed as we sat in a warm car drinking hot chocolate. Not comfortable, but definitely comforting.
My sons are grown with children of their own, and I know they still enjoy hours of outdoor fun. Well, they and all the numerous snow lovers now have it in abundance so they can participate in whatever form of fun they choose, while its here. Soon enough, we’ll see or hear the first robins. YES! 🙂
