I'd forgotten all the things I didn't like about snow.
We cycled over to a friends Monday afternoon and cycled back as the first flakes started falling. The wind was gusting and my son was probably regretting his intense hatred of mittens--what can you say to a three-year old?
I think that's it for bikes--no more cycling to school, no more scooting. I'm thinking about getting a big black sled, one you can fit 3 kids on at a time and drag home. The only problem is getting my son to voluntarily stay on the damn thing. Hmm. Maybe I'll drag him around the aisles of Canadian tire and see how he goes. Or swaddle him in blankets, or maybe I'll just drive LOL.
Things I hate about snow:
Not seeing the lines in the road and not being exactly sure where my lane is when I'm driving. Car skidding (and yes we have a 4-wheel drive).
Everybody else driving like it isn't really snowing (Winnipeg drivers are nuts).
Getting it all over the house, all over the car. All over the dogs.
Poop scooping (damn I wish I'd scooped before I went out yesterday, because now it'll be a mystery till Spring).
Having to dry my hair before I leave the house.
Shovelling the path.
Cold feet (must drag out my fabby snow boots :))
Dressing the kids in all their layers.
I'll do another post about all the things I love about snow later in the week.
And suddenly the lure of Florida is getting stronger and more attractive :D
