On Sunday, we got our first snow in about two years. Actually, it snowed a few times last year but it wasn’t cold enough for the snow to stick. In my book, it doesn’t count as snow unless it lasts as least an hour. That’s like going trick-or-treating and getting an empty candy wrapper.
I think my kids must be defective. There was only about half an inch of snow, winds were gusting at 30-50mph, and it was around eight degrees (wind chill). And yet, the kids were so excited about the snow. I like snow too, but I’m not too fond of the wind gusts and I need at least three inches of snow before I get excited. When I was an itty bitty lad, we use to get snow every year. Now, snow is kinda rare here on the valley floor. Sometimes, I envy people who get a lot of snow every year.
