Enjoying each season for its reason, I truly look forward to that gorgeous white fluffy flaky stuff.
As a child I would pray for snow & promise God I'd do something special if He would blanket us for Christmas. Now this rarely occurred in WA ST.
This one year ('49) we had a blizzard like no tomorrow. It was splendid, a child's delight. We could barely see over the top of
the shoveled walkway piles of snow. We 5 would build forts & snowmen & snow angels ... hours of cold fun, wet gloves & snow down inside our goulashes. Still we were relentless in staying outside to play. I can't tell you how much fun it was shoveling neighbors sidewalks for a paltry 25 cents (we thought we were rich). And deelish snow ice cream ... can't have winter without it!
Our neighbors teenage sons decided to build a snowman that
beats all snowmen. It was approx. 12' high. I remember them
asking Mother permission to roll the snowballs in/from our yard.
They then hollowed out the center of the snowman, put a ladder inside & pelted snow balls out the eyes/mouth/nose, at passersby.
It was quite the sight, we kids all delighted in the huge snowman ... & it took months for that fella to melt. I remember we walked down to see the last remnants, sadly.
