Finally we got a big snow…I’d been waiting and waiting as snow is kind of one of my favorite things about living in Utah. Summer is great, Spring is nice (although usually short) and Fall is gorgeous (although also shorter than I would like) but Winter brings the snow. There is nothing more fun than sitting inside all cozy and warm and seeing the snow fall out the window…especially knowing that the roads will be plowed. And speaking of that, I love waking up in the night seeing the yellow flashes of the lights against the darkness of my bedroom and hearing the rumble of the snow plows driving down our street…it means we got a great snow while I slept! Snow is also great for building snowmen and snow forts, snowball fights and skiing. The kids were super excited to get the shovels out and clear the driveway…they were even fighting over who got one of our two shovels…but after clearing one or two strips each, they were all done and were happy to give the shovels back to me. Each winter we contemplate splurging and getting a snow blower and although shoveling isn’t really a whole ton of fun, I’m glad that we have resisted. It’s good exercise and soon enough we’ll get those kids shoveling without complaints (ok…that may be wishful thinking).
