snow and kids and adults

oops, not this kind of blizzard!!!!

Kids love snow, snow expands their day, snowmen, snow angels, snow ball fights, snow forts, and sledding. The possibilities of fun for kids is limited only by their imaginations.

Adults on the other hand, find their days contracted, stuck in the house, cannot get to the Malls, and for mothers mostly, additional laundry and cleaning of wet snow clothes.

For many adults, being forced to stay inside, also limits their social life. We cannot visit friends,and older folks have no social contact.

For adults, driving is treacherous, and emergencies become nightmares.

But for kids, all they see is the fun of the white stuff. My kids are grown, now I have dogs that I must walk and also play with in the snow. As dogs are like kids, snow simply expands their day and fun.

So for all the adults, try to find that inner child and enjoy the huge Nor'easter blanketing the northeast.

My parents and I enjoyed the snow today. We went for a long walk down 322 to pick up my car from inspection, then walked to wawa for a hot drink. Luckily we put new tires on the car and were able to make it back home in one piece. Hope you're enjoying the day even if it is not on the bike.
