1-Snowflakes, big fluffy ones on Christmas Eve?-I'll give you that one. But the snow better have stopped by Christmas morning.
2-Snowman on the front lawn?-Mmmm, maybe. But I think the chunks of coal would be of more use warming up the house.
3. Snow angels?-No, if I'm going to lie in the snow flapping my arms, it will be because I'm sinking in a glacial crevasse.
4.Snowforts and tunnels?-Never. With the energy it takes to build a fort system, I could have swum the distance to the nearest tropical resort.
5.White pristine cover to the ground? Nope. Too many dogs for the snow to stay pristine after the last flake has fallen.
6. Stanley Cup Playoffs? Not anymore. Now the hockey season is so long it ends about the same time June brides are getting their flowers arranged.
7. A reminder of how great it will be when the snow has all gone and summer returns? Yes! Finally a logical reason to welcome the snow.
Of course my grandchildren disagree with me- figure skating and hockey make winter their favourite time. Now- there is the one reason I can learn to cope with winter-watching them at their winter sports. So, bring on the ice and snow. After all, it can't last forever, can it?
