Last year we had about 2 snowy days - very unusual for an area that normally receives about 200 inches of snow each season. So far, we've received about 24 inches. So, what would you do - hibernate or play in the snow? I'm tempted to hibernate but I know that leads me down the road to depression. A sledding party is what we need! Sunday was the perfect day - temperature was about 35 degrees, a few snowflakes in the air. We invaded my parents back yard, invited friends, built a fire (and a snowman), cooked hotdogs, drank hot cocoa. (and then I went home and hibernated for night.) I find that I survive winter better if I force myself to get out of the house (other than going to work.) I get my groceries after supper, attend meetings, and play in the snow.
I'm looking forward to this weekend. The weathermen are forecasting a January thaw - it may get up to 50 degrees. I guarantee people will be out in shorts. Not me! But I will be out taking walks and soaking up some fresh air.
