Here’s another winter weather update.
Our 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.
