Snow -- by definition - noun - an atmospheric water vapor frozen into ice crystals and falling in light white flakes or lying on the ground as white layer. (According to Google.)
I loathed snow days as a kid. I have never been much of an outdoor adventurer. In fact, there was no thrill to me what-so-ever to put on layers of clothes, under a heavy coat with mittens, and to wear heavy socks covered in bread sacks stuffed in shoes that were in turn stuffed into black snow boots. The expectation was I was to wander about outside and have fun. Honestly I think my mother just wanted us out of the house. It just wasn't any fun. It took what seemed an eternity to get back to normal clothing after putting on all the snow clothes. The other thing was no matter how hard I tried, I could never, ever keep my socks dry when getting out of the snowy boots and clothes. Wet socks are just evil. Ah...the horror of it all.
I went on one ski trip one time. It was disastrous. First of all, the entire group fell victim to a food borne illness from chili which had sat too long at room temperature while being transported. It wasn't given enough reheat time so the ones who ate first ended up being the most ill. There were 20 plus people in the house and two bathrooms. I was one of the luckier ones because my case was pretty mild. I had eaten toward the last and by that time, most of the germs were gone. (Most but not all.) It took my years (and I do mean years) to eat chili again. It had been a favorite at school as a kid because I loved the chili and homemade cinnamon rolls at school. And to this day, if I even think chili has sat out a minute or two longer than it should, it gets trashed.
After I was married and we moved to western Wyoming, my husband's friends loved to go snowmobiling. I tried it once and that was certainly enough for me. Again, it was cold and there wasn't any fun it in. They all had a blast but I can at least say I tried it.
Snow is very pretty to look at when it falls very gently from the sky and I am indoors looking out. I am glad there are those folks who love snow. I figure I balance out the proverbial universal teeter totter because enjoying the outdoors with snow is not my idea of fun whatsoever.
