I love snow!
My love of the white, cold, fluffy stuff began long ago.
Here I am as a toddler playing in the snow.
I love everything about these pictures.
The little wagon, my snow clothes & the cute snowman standing beside our old Christmas tree.
I love 'snow days'!
You know, the days when school is cancelled.
I don't remember too many 'snow days' from my school years.
One time in high school classes we were out of class because of a big snow. Most of it melted away before the end of the day.
My favorite 'snow day' memories are those from my 30 years of teaching. During the winter of 1979 I think the ground stayed white from January to March. We missed many days in the classroom that year.
Throughout the years I have to admit I was just as excited as the students were when it was announced that school was closed. Of course, the reality of those days having to be made up were pushed aside.
Have you ever heard of Wilson 'Snowflake' Bentley?
Here's my post from Jan. '09 about Wilson.
So far our winter has been mild & warmer than normal.
Only a little snow on Jan. 12th.
I'm still hoping for a beautiful snowstorm!
