Growing up in Minnesota, I was pretty used to snow being on the ground for the better part of 4 or 5 months.
Within 200 feet from our house was a sweet park with a pond and a great hill. I would head over there almost every time it snowed to go sledding.
With about 10 inches of snow in the past 2 days I have been able to relive those childhood memories with some legitimate cold snow. This is the most snow that we’ve had since I moved to Oregon in 1995. Check out a video of my sledding adventure today…(video embedded RSS readers)
It has been a wonderful weekend of mostly being stuck at home (because we don’t have chains and you can get a ticket right now for driving on the roads without chains). We’ve been able to slow down and take in the Christmas season together. I can’t complain about that.
I love the snow. Being that we have close to a foot about a foot and a half now, it is definitely the best Christmas present I could get.
