It was the kind of snow, light and fluffy, that makes you want to go outside and make snow angels, running and playing like you were a small child. In fact, our neighbor’s small children were doing just that, enjoying the day off school, as it was a holiday. They sledded down the small hill in the yard, and you could hear the happy voices for a while.
It was also the kind of snow, and chilly, yet mild, temperatures, that makes your cheeks flush when you come back inside, and all you want is a cup of hot chocolate and to curl up by a fire with a good book. Mmmmmm.
The snow was also greatly needed, and appreciated, by the ski operators in Maine’s mountains, as we haven’t had a good snow for several weeks, so this provided a nice addition to the ski slopes. It will also make for great snowshoeing and cross-country skiing around Freeport, and also at the many area locations.
We’re hoping to get out to visit one of the cross-country ski areas nearby, to try that graceful sport.
What is your favorite thing about snow?
