SNOWY DAYS, FROSTY NIGHTS AND WARM HEARTS

By Nancy Whitaker

I always thought I loved winter, snow, cold, ice and blizzards. I think it feels so good to curl up in the warm house when it snows. I put my fuzzy fleece pants on, drink hot tea, make soup and stare at the snowflakes as they drift down in front of the windows. However, the older I get, the less inviting any cold or snow becomes.

Of course, kids think a snow day is the best thing about a snow storm. They get to sleep in, spend the day inside watching TV or playing video games and basking in the warm cozy house.

But as the snow keeps coming down day after day, as it has this year, our snowmen begins to look droopy, everyone gets sick of being cold and suddenly the once warm, inviting house seems extremely small.
