You’ll never guess what happened.
Like real, REAL, snow. Not just pretty white flakes that fall and promptly melt, but the kind of snow that stays on the ground and sticks around ALL. DAY. LONG!
The kind that you can make respectable enough angels and forts and snowmen from!
Okay, I realize that this might not seem like a big deal to those of you who live and breathe snow all winter, but to us… to boys who have never ever made a snowman… to people who don’t recall ever having a snow that lasted past noon… to us this is nothing short of a miracle.
It’s a pure, white, honest to goodness miracle.
We didn’t even have proper gloves, and we sure as heck don’t own snowpants. So we’d play until we couldn’t stand the cold and wet anymore, then we’d run in and throw our pants and socks in the dryer while we huddled under blankets. Then when our clothes were nice and toasty again, we’d go back out and do it all over . We did this all day long.
And I’m pretty sure that we’ll wake up tomorrow with cheeks that are sore from all that smiling 🙂
