Snow, baby, snow!

This just in....a winter storm watch beginning tomorrow evening and lasting until Friday morning - YAY! In case you didn't know I love snow! In fact, I'm probably one of only a few in this town that relishes the white fluffy stuff. The more, the better, in my opinion. Growing up in northern Illinois, we spent most of our winters waiting for the next big snow. I can remember as a child playing in snow drifts in the backyard that were taller than swing set. Of course, there are a lot more hills in Morrison than Champaign, so we did our fair share of sledding to. Then there's always snowmobiling. I love it too. Besides, how else are we going to get from the bottom of the hill to the top so we can sled down again? I think maybe the only thing I don't like about snow (besides it melting) is shoveling it. So until the it starts snowing tomorrow afternoon, I'll be patiently waiting for the 8-10 inches of snow I've been promised.
