Just had 13.5 inches come down yesterday in Central Jersey. It was really pretty, but over a foot? Come on!
Just read that it’s going to snow again today. Seriously? COME ON! HOW MANY TIMES IS IT GOING TO SNOW LIKE THIS MAN?!?!?
You know what? I have to say, that at 42, I am still dazzled by snow. I still love watching it come down, settle on the hill behind my place, blanketing everything in a frothy sea of white. I worked from home yesterday and again today and I think that’s making the difference in my perception, allowing me to distance myself from it being a nuisance because I don’t have to drive in it :).
Gillian and I went out on Wednesday night when it was already starting to drop a bit on the ground, they had an early dismissal. Just sledding down the hill, making a bump for her to jump over on her sled, rolling down the hill and almost puking myself – it was just fun. Made some snowballs and attempted to make a snowman too, again, just fun.
Even if you’re sick of it, look at it like a kid, and even better if you have one, go out and play in it like one. I’m lucky in that I have two kids who still love playing in it so I can still be 10 yrs old and flopping on my belly on the sled or on my butt in the disk. Tho, the kids won’t let me hit the bump – I always demolish it and never get any air 😉
