Sled Riding... a forgotten past time by some

For all those kids out there in front of the computer
or the XBox or your fingers all a twitter tweeting
and twitching with indoor communication....or texting.....
on your Iphone...
Wake Up!!! get out of the house.. Look what
you are missing..

There is a very steep hill just above my house and when it
snows... and snows as it has this February the sled riding
is excellent.

My granddaughter and daddy came to give it a try..
Walking up the hill is hard...but the anticipation of the
"ride" down is alluring

When you see the face of an 8 year old..having fun

You know the walk was worth ....

every second of the 'ride'

Sometimes you go into a briar bush and crash... but
daddy is there to help you out

Soon... comes the hard part.. getting too tired to walk
the hill .. then daddy has to pull... and I hear him saying
"I know I used to but you're a big girl now"
but he did anyway.

It made for one happy grand daughter...

I thought we were on the downside of winter....but this
morning this is what I saw out the computer room window

The Northeast was hit again over night with snow
and high winds... drifting and power outages...

We only got about 3 inches...but the wind is brutal and
the blowing snow looks like a blizzard out there.

I think it will be awhile before I can sit in my garden and
smell the flowers....
