Lunchtime Poll 1/12

How is everyone faring on this snowy Wednesday lunch?  Did you know that yesterday there was snow in 49 states?!  The only state that didn’t have snow was Florida.  And that brings us to the lunchtime poll.  What is your favorite snow-related memory?  For me it’s the winter that I was in 5th grade.   We had an abnormally snowy winter and were off every other day from school for almost two weeks.  My sister, neighbor and I spent the days sledding and building snow forts.  I would come inside and hang my wet clothes to dry by a fire and watch movies.  I remember thinking even then that it was a perfect winter that I may never experience again.  So – how about you all?  Any fun snow memories?
