I was thinking I need to put a pillow or some sort of cushion on the sled because my butt has no cushioning what so ever and just sitting on a hard surface is sometimes painful. Sitting on a hard surface and bouncing???? Well that would really hurt!

I remember how hard it was to get up the hill even as a kid, especially when the hill was really packed down--it was one step forward, one long slide back emoticon Just think of the workout!!

Leslie, I still sled with my daughter but I've found it's the walk back up the hill that is the killer. And I seem to feel the bumps a lot harder than I did 30 years ago ;)

I was right, the beautiful red sunrise led to snow on and off most of the day.
Two of my daughters are suppose to come up from the Twin Cities tomorrow, so I hope the roads will be clear for them!!

It is beautiful to watch the snow. I wish my joints handled the outdoors during this time better. I would love to pull out an old sled and slide away!!

Poor Linda46!!! Yup, when I think of Wi in the winter - I think of snow!! I guess you'll just have to go buy some nice warm gloves and a coat as a reward for Sparking!!

Lesliekeb that reminds me I had to work a early shift on this past Sat and I saw the "sun" raise and it was blood red! And that's the frist thing that popped in my head!! And a few minutes before noon it started to snow and we got 4 to 6 inches! We're supposed to get anywhere from 1 to 4 inches again tonight, oh well as much as I hate snow and cold Wi is where I live!

Hey kids it's me Linda46,

Flasun, I hope you get to experience a snow fall some day. When I moved to Southern California years ago, I insisted on driving up to Big Bear Lake Ski Resort during the holiday season so I could have snow. Otherwise, I've always lived in the Midwest.

I think the best thing about snow is its beauty - it's absolutely magical the way it falls through the skeletons of trees up against a black sky. However, most adults like to enjoy it from indoors where they don't have to drive in it ;0)

School closed here for 2nd day in a row. The sun is shining today, but tomorrow we're under 70% chance of sleet & snow. Our side roads are terrible and one of the plows in town is broke already. I'm glad I'm off work tomorrow!

Falsun--Oh that needs to be something on your to do list!! You HAVE to experience snow once in your life!! I really like snowshoeing. I think it is really the only winter sport I care for. I will be moving to Arizona in May so this is my last winter, at least for a while.

Linda--I noticed we had a red sunrise this morning here by good ol' Lake Superior. You know what they say about that? Red Morning, Sailor take warning--so we will see what the day brings and if we get more snow. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee! emoticon

I wish that it snowed here in south Florida. It has been in the high 70's, it has finally gotten to where in the morning it is in the upper 50's. Enjoy the snow.

I live in Superior Wisconsin and we got a lot of snow yesterday. I think it pretty much snowed all day. Duluth, MN (right across the bridge from us) got hit even harder.
This is the second measurable snow we've had in a week.

We had about 3" in CT where I live on Sunday, followed by a rain fall in the evening that washed it all off!! No time to enjoy the beauty. That was our first. Hope there will be a white Christmas:) to stay home warm and drink hot chocolate (low fat, of course)
