Embrace It

25.01.2016 – Day 25

The great “Snowmageddon” has hit the USA and dumped a huge helping of the winter white stuff across much of the east coast.

I remember snow. I grew up with it. I have warm memories of my father sculpting huge snow animals on our front lawn and making us a skating rink out back. We went skiing, skating, played road hockey and even organised huge neighbourhood snowball fights to pass those winter days.

Living in north america snow is definitely a big part of the winter experience – whether you love it or not. I learned early on that to enjoy winter (and even just to get through it some years) you have to embrace it.

Whether it’s skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, skating, snow mobiling, playing hockey, ice fishing, ice climbing or adapting your favourite summer sport to its winter equivalent – you have to get out there and enjoy it. Otherwise you end up stuck in the house for 3-4 months at a time.

So, if you live in a place where winter, cold and snow are a given, rather than do your best hibernating bear impression, be these guys instead.

When winter gives you snow, get out and go. Embrace it. The snow presents an opportunity for fun that not everyone is lucky enough to experience.

Next time it snows, get out in it – go make a snowman and you might just  find that you’ve made some lasting memories too!
