Making snow angels is fun annual tradition

'Jim, are you ready to make snow angels?' I asked my husband. 'I think we're going to get at least an inch of snow today.'

Since we have gotten older, we have become more daring. Several years ago, we saw two characters who would be considered senior citizens in a movie, making snow angels. It looked like great fun.

The first time we did it, we hadn't laughed so hard in ages. We wondered if any of our neighbors had seen us, and if they would think we were senile. We were in our 60s at the time.

We decided we didn't care. So we have made it a tradition every year since.

Sister didn't last long outdoors

It had snowed all night, and it was still snowing when my sis and I awakened the next morning.

'No school today,' we shouted, and after breakfast my little sis, who was all of 6 years old, ran to get her outdoor clothes and go out to play.
