The Midwest has been hit hard in the past couple weeks with snow -- about 24 inches in Kansas City.
I have come to realize that children see the snow so differently than adults do. Kids see a snow day filled with snowball fights, snow forts, sledding and no school.
Adults become a bit jaded to the beauty of snow because they experience all the repercussions. They deal with hazardous road conditions, cold cars, shoveling and power outages. There are a few adults, however, who never lose the fun in a snow day and one of those adults is my dad.
He loves the snow and his engineered industrial snow blower. His “playing in the snow” consists of plowing every driveway on our block. This snow stud sincerely enjoys every minute of it. Helping others has always made my dad happy, and if he gets to use a cool piece of machinery in the process … all the better.
Be more childish and enjoy the snow!
