ADJUSTING TO A
WINTER WITHOUT SNOW
Our weather this winter
has been noticeably warmer,
and without the snow of past years.
Noticeable changes in our winter lives:
o No sledding or toboggans down neighborhood hills.
o No helping children build snowmen in the yard.
o No dressing up for long walks in snow covered fields.
o No staying home from school or work due to snow warnings.
o No skis or snow boards strapped atop cars . . .
UNLESS, OF COURSE
We make our own snow!
A short drive, west of St. Louis,
to Hidden Valley Ski Lodge,
where they cover their slopes with snow.
(Man-made snow is better than none.)
I suppose this will do
until we get the real thing!
