Where I live in Seattle we don't get much real winter weather. But I have been watching the snow and blustery weather going on in the rest of the country and remembering the winters I used to know growing up in northern Minnesota. And even though it was frequently cold and snowy, we practically lived outside in the winter. There was just so much to do and see.
I have been remembering days spent skating on the rink the firemen created every winter by flooding the parking lot by the town hall. This was where the boys learned to play hockey and the girls practiced their fancy spins and twirls. My favorite thing was to just skate round and round and enjoy the feeling of flying over the ice. Purely magic.
