Those of you who live with lots of snow for a good portion of the winter please forgive my exuberance this week as I revel in the snow we received during the middle of the week. Here in the Eastern part of Virginia snow is a rarity, more so than in Central Virginia where I grew up. Then we would get snow every year; Wednesday’s snow was the first one here in about 2 years I think.
So I will wax rhapsodic about the snowfall this week.
My favorite thing to do whenever it snowed was to go sledding. We’d wax the runners of our sleds, set out for the neighborhood street that had the best hill, and fly down it all day, usually for several days as I remember.
I’m really astonished that we didn’t get killed.
True, we lived in a cul-de-sac sort of neighborhood, but the street we rode down had a T-intersection and cars could have come along and wiped us out very easily. We, of course, never thought about that.
Ahh, the invincibility of youth!
I do remember the rush of wind, the bite of the cold, the pure enjoyment of the ride. Given the opportunity, I think I would indulge even today, although I’m sure I’d ride sitting up, not laying down. LOL
My favorite thing to do when it snows now is cook. A pot of chili and some cornbread
muffins enjoyed while watching the bird feeders in the backyard is the ticket on a snowy day nowadays.
How do you enjoy a snowy day at your house?
