13 Reasons to Love Snow...

Contest, click here.
Holy gettin' dumped on here Batman! I promised the babies we would go to the museum today, so out we went. As I'm pushin' the stroller through the snow, I realized if I didn't come up with some reasons to like snow, it was going to be a long winter...So let's see if I can come up with thirteen...
13) It's beautiful, makes the city look clean when it first falls
12) I like to watch the snow fall
11) I'm sure the weather man can tell us why, but snow always seems to snap a cold spell
10) Snow angels
9) Snow ball fights
8) Making snow men
7) Snow days from school
6) Sledding
5) Snow forts
4) Catching snow on your tongue
3) Snow tubing
2) I am looking forward to taking my kiddos out to play in the snow
1) You gotta know this is my #1, skiing!!!

  1. good for you for getting outside and walking with the kids in the snow! We're watching our snow from the windows and I'm secretly wishing this is a very short winter!

  3. I like snow because my dogs love to play in and with it, and my cats chase snowflakes from behind the window. :-)

    Snow Ice-Cream
    ==============
    1 gallon-size bucket of CLEAN snow

    Mix it all together and eat it quick!

  24. My daughter has been carrying around her bathing suit for the past few weeks asking when we are going back to the beach.

    She's not too happy about snow.

    Can't say I blame her. But happy skiing to you.

    ReplyDelete

    Happy TT!

  34. Hurray for Snow Angels! :)

    GREAT list, but too bad we don't see a whole lot of it here in Arkansas. :(

    Happy TT from Tisha @ Crazy Working Mom

  35. I love, love, love snow, but here in Nashville, we don't get much at all. So little, in fact, that they close schools if there's even a possibility of it snowing. Enjoy it!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Snow is fantastic -- the first five or so times in a season. After that, it's outstayed its welcome, IMHO.

    ReplyDelete
  37. We never get snow here:( I guess thats what happens when you live in Southern Cal close to Palm Springs...lol. Happy TT.

    ReplyDelete
  39. You forgot the best thing about snow....watching it on tv while all you people have to go through it :D As for skiiing, tried it once in my teens and broke my ankle, so not doing that again :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Nice reflections on snow. It makes me want to like it--almost. Happy TT

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have had to make my peace with the snow too - the coolest thing about snow in MN......Cartoon flakes (that is what the kids call it) because they are perfect flakes that land on your window (they look like the ones in cartoons) just perfect little flakes.......

    ReplyDelete
  42. Nice list. I love snow too- as long as I don't have to drive in it or shovel it. ;)

  43. I miss skiing! tell me a shooshing story- your worst wipe out? Best run ever? Coolest lodge?

    ReplyDelete
  44. OH! I love snow for all those reasons too! But, we don't get much snow here in the south so I kind of miss it. Here's a link to my # 19

  47. I am TOTALLY with you on this list!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Great list. I like watching snow fall, but I'm not all that fond of shoveling it or driving in it. And, sadly, I don't ski. But, I do like that pristine look that everything has right after it's done and the sky has cleared. It's truly beautiful.

    Happy TT!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love snow and everything about it (except the melting, that is, the melting sucks). Three cheers for snow!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I like looking at snow, but it gets really old after a while. :)

    ReplyDelete

  53. pushing a stroller in snow...that is courageous.
    I love snow angels and the snow is even prettier now that we live in the country. Great TT this week, and I am adding you to my Mamas blogroll page.

  54. There is a peace that seems to come over the earth when snow falls. Everything gets quiet and clean and just beautiful.

    Happy TT

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oh my goodness! I can't imagine going for a walk, with a stroller, in the snow!

    I live in SC...if it snows here, no one goes ANYwhere...and you better buy the milk and bread the very second the forecast is broadcast or you may be out of luck!!!

    I do like the snow though! I'm just not sure how long that would last if it was a normal thing ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Snow, eh? In my vision of you you're eternally in the sunshine as you're shown on the homepage. Now I'm recalibrating....I live in Florida, so it's been years since I saw any snow. Back when I lived in North Carolina, I did love the first few days and it always melted before I got REALLY fed up with it. But I agree that there IS a lot to like and it IS beautiful---if you're stuck with it, you might as well learn to love it.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hehe, great list! I love the snow too! I also love how it looks like there's glitter in it. :-0 Hapy TT :P

    ReplyDelete
  58. Great list! It's getting me excited to play in the snow. As I do live in Hawaii I'm taking my son to New York later this month and it will be his first time seeing real snow. But you have given me some great ideas thanks.
    Oh here's my TT too.

    Happy T13!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Those are all wonderful reasons to like snow. Thanks, I needed some after the storms we've had lately.

    I've never been skiing but I'm willing to believe it's as fun as everyone says. :)

    Happy TT

  60. I love it because it's a perfect time to curl up with some hot chocolate and a blanket and watch the wintery neighborhood out of the window. When the sun is out, the whole world seems brighter.

    ReplyDelete
  61. We just got a bunch of snow in the Flint, MI area. While doing things around the apartment this morning, I did take some time to just watch the snow fall.
