Do you like snow?
As a kid, I loved it. As an adult, I dread it. My favorite snow is the kind that sticks to the ground, but not to the street. In other words, snow that doesn’t slow me down.
With this being one of the busiest times of the year, snow seems like a really big inconvenience, but for my kids, it’s something different. It means no school. It means they get to go outside and have a snowball fight. Snow, to them, means fun.
After dreading a pending storm, I had to come to grips with the reality, once again, that I don’t control the weather. The snow is going to come when its going to come. And as much as I’d like for the snow to miss us, my kids are hoping just as hard that it doesn’t.
The snow came, the kids played and I couldn’t help but get caught up in their excitement over it. The snow forced me to pause, take a breath, and appreciate what was going on around me. Snow may be inconvenient, but it brings something else with it — beauty, joy and fun.
How do you make the most of things (like the weather) that inconvenience you during this busy time of year?
Here in Georgia snow = the apocalypse on the highways. I’m hoping for a snowless iceless winter.
I completely understand where you’re coming from. Living in a city with large hills, icy conditions can make for a messy and stressful situation. If it does snow, what do you and your family do to make the most of it?
I haven’t had to deal with it just yet, beyond almost having a flight cancelled a few years back. I was on my way out of the country so I wasn’t here for it. I made the flight. Last year we didn’t get ice or now.
Wishing you ice (and snow) free travel.
