Open your door, take 12 steps, fall over backwards and make a snow angel. Get up and look how amazing it is. Simple, yet captivating. Doesn't cure you of the winter and snow longing, but aggravates it, and makes it so you don't want to go inside.
Fantastic thought, B!!

We say the best ice is more than two years old and that ice is the only accepable substitute for frozen cider in a Maine old fashioned.

Been there. Done that. Wore out the T-shirt.

I expect that everybody here has a DeLorme Atlas, right?
Love that Delorme........I actually buy a new oone every couple of years......have one in each vehicle....and the house. I also have my first one where I mark all of the places I have been too. Could be a whole thread dedicated to it.

I know~I already feel tougher. On the Cape I was a big baby when it snowed..."oh no...four inches...my sports car will spin out".

The other day we got over a foot and I went to work all big and bad...my father couldn't believe it.

If you have the right equipment and car it's really not so bad (although the hills are a little scary still).
