Snow Pile

Here’s another winter weather update.

Sled Runs

picture of sledding down a snow pileOur neighbor was nice and plowed all his snow into a pile. Our kids like using their sleds on that snow pile. Not the best (about 4 feet high), but it’s quick and convenient. Plus they don’t have far to walk to carry the sled to the top of the hill.

Normally, they’re out there after school and when I get home from work I’ll watch or help them until dinnertime. One day I arrived in time to hear Alpha describing all the options – the runs from the top of the pile.

  • Daredevil
  • Tiny Terror

They’ve never been skiing, so I don’t know where he got the idea to name the different slopes. Maybe he has a future in marketing.

Gloves

What to do if your glove falls off in the snow?

If you’re a one- or two-year-old, your best bet is just to sit in the snow and cry.

Sledding Devices

Alpha has a favorite sled, which he likes to use. We bought the family a new sled, and Beta promptly claimed it as his. Since Alpha had already claimed his own, and since Gamma didn’t really care, Beta’s claim stuck.

But before all that, Beta was trying different sleds, including this:

Yes, he sat on the shovel and slid down the hill. It worked, mostly.

When she opened it, she saw the child, and behold, the boy was crying. And she had pity on him and said, “This is one of the Hebrews’ children.”

    I’m with Gamma.

    Although it wouldn’t take something as drastic as my glove falling off to make me cry.

    Just the fact that it snowed does that.
