As someone who loves snow, I am living joyfully and vicariously through my grandson Noah as he frolics in the first intense snowfall in Maryland this year. All rosy cheeked, Noah looks like he's having a blast. From talking with my mom about snow days when I was growing up, she recalls I was excited to get out in the snow but that I rarely spent long periods of time outside in the snow before I'd come traipsing back in the house to sit by the furnace drinking hot chocolate.
I hope Noah spent a little more time out in the snow than simply to capture pictures. Snow can be tons of fun. I remember John, Jarrod, and Jeff in the snow in Indiana, making snow forts, snowmen, snow angels, snowballs for fights. Loved it! Love the memories. I hope Noah garners some precious memories to from playing in the snow.
