What is it about the wintertime that makes it so easy to forget the cold and warm up to the snow? Could it be that you can make a snowman, or throw snowballs? I love the winter. If it is going to be cold though, I want snow. Unlike most times of the year, the colder isn’t always the better.
You have to be able to do something with the snow and powder just doesn’t work well. Andrew is picking up some packing material while I get ready to trim. If there is one thing more important than winter without snow, I can’t think of it! Oh wait! what about hills. Here around our home the hills are not big enough to do anything with but sit in your sled and push. I remember the days when I was growing up and we had hills that were scary and fast. When the snow would come down and school was cancelled we would be out in the storm packing down the paths on the hills. This would just about make it like ice by the next morning. I also remember a lot of kids to play with. It was great fun.
For now, we will have to do without the hills. Its okay, because in a few years we will find a place that has a few mountain like hills and hopefully a lot of kids to help make it come alive with fun. Anyways, with just a hoodie and gloves, it is pretty easy to have a good time making our snowman comes alive. Don’t forget your dog water bowl for a hat. Just don’t let the snowman think he can get that kind of bling, when it comes time for his suit. After all, the best part about the snow is it is free and costs nothing to enjoy it.
