We got tons of snow last night. Actually it started snowing about lunchtime yesterday, and was still snowing some this morning.
What I loved most was sledding. In our neighborhood there is a cul-de-sac with a great hill and no houses on it. Since there is no traffic, we could have open season on sledding. Actually that's better than it was when I was a a kid -- we had to dodge parked cars and actual traffic back then.
This was almost perfect. If it had been about 5 degrees cooler, then the snow would have been perfect. Even when we went out again tonight, it was a little too warm for ideal conditions.
But hey, this was the best sledding I have seen since the 1970s. Back then, my dad bought a big Flexible Flyer sled for me and my sister. OK, he used it some, too. I remember the three of us going down the hill together.
That very same sled took my kids down the hill today. Lots of memories were made with this snow. Such a fun way to get in the Christmas spirit.
Thank you, Jesus, for blessing us with the sinple pleasures of life!
