We’re still waiting for our first snow here in the Washington DC area. So far, with the exception of a couple of very cold days earlier this month, our winter has been very mild. And while the occasional 60 degree day in January is nice, I find myself longing for snow.
I miss real winters like the ones I remember from my childhood. I remember playing in the snow or going sledding for days on end, and then coming back inside to enjoy the hot chocolate my mom had ready for me.
In the almost 40 years I’ve lived in this area, we’ve had some pretty crazy winters, most recently in 2010 when we had back to back storms adding up to more than 30 inches. For this area, that’s a lot of snow. And while I don’t really want to see a repeat of that again, I really would like a little snow, even just a dusting, to experience the magic the quote above talks about at least once this winter.
Do you like snow? Have you had any snow this winter, and if not, do you miss it?
