The bad of snow has been our inability to really enjoy it this season. There sure has been plenty, but with a rotating illness and other reasons have kept us from fully engaging in the season that saw some pretty big snows. Nothing matched two years ago, but there is still snow on the ground. Monday, however, I decided to get out with my son while my daughter was in school. We stopped by a few stores to see if there were snow boots on sale. Struck out at the two first ones, but a fancy footwear shop had some very reasonably priced end-of-season selections. After dropping the boots off at the car, I romped in the snow with my son. We made a snowman and threw snowballs. The snow was a little too wet to make angels without full snow gear on. As we sat on a park bench some distance away from our creation, a woman waked her dog up to the snowman, and the dog promptly lifted its leg to captive audience.
