After an epic snow storm, I found myself reliving my own childhood memories and wondering what these two will have for memories of winter.  The memories of snowbanks higher then cars and huge mountains that were impossible to climb,  coupled with it being so cold you're nostril hairs would freeze, came flooding back to me.  Yes, I live five hours south of where these memories came from; however last weekend we had two feet of snow dropped upon us in a 24 hour period and today we might have six inches on the ground.  Last winter it snowed once, which was very disappointing for a young lad of two.  Though this winter's snowfall has been far better, the temperatures have been so warm, the snow melts away within days of arrival.  Winter can be long, dark and isolating with it's coldness and shortened days,  but adding snow just makes it fun and wonderful.  I sincerely hope my children are able enjoy the spoils of winter as I was.  They sure appreciate what they have been introduced to so far!
