I tried to find a kid sledding on Monday. I’m sure there were some but not within my eyesight. What I did see was lots of people on ATV’s. They’re fun but sledding is part of being a kid or at least it sure was when I was growing up. Some very fond memories still linger of sledding down a hill in the snow. I even groomed the course to create more speed just to make it more daring. Sure there were crashes for me and others but we survived, none the worse for wear and we smiled while doing it
As we shovel snow, here’s a reminder: WINTER BEGINS NEXT FRIDAY !!!
