SNOW....IT CAME..SILENTLY, THIS MORNING AROUND 12:30 AM. I GOT UP, JUST TO SEE THE FIRST SNOW AND TOOK A COUPLE PICTURES. IT IS 9 AM ON OCTOBER 10TH..2009.  I HURRIDLY TOOK A FEW MORE PICTURES AND IN MY 'HASTE'...AM UNABLE TO LOCATE THEM ..RIGHT NOW.  SO I WILL WRITE, INSTEAD.  IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE THAT SOME HAVE NEVER ..EVER..EXPERIENCED SNOW.  ITS PURE WHITE BEAUTY IS SOMETHING TO BEHOLD...SURE WHEN IT GETS COLD...AND BELIEVE ME, IT GETS VERY COLD IN MINNESOTA...WELL,..BRRRRR.  DRESS WARMLY AND GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY IN THE SNOW. WE MADE LOTS OF SNOWMEN, BACK THEN.  (I'M SORRY...BUT THEY WERE NOT CALLED A 'SNOWPERSON'...IT JUST DOESN'T HAVE THE SAME...'RING' TO IT!)..THIS WAS ESPECIALLY GOOD WHEN THE  SUN HAD COME OUT AND THE SNOW WAS 'STICKY' AND YOU COULD JUST ROLL THOSE BIG ROLLS INTO A... 'SNOWMAN.'  'GO GET A CARROT AND TWO PIECES OF COAL, (REAL COAL, FROM THAT HUGE FURNACE...DOWNSTAIRS.'  WE WOULD FIND AN OLD SCARF AND TIE IT AROUND HIS NECK.  LORRAINE AND I ALWAYS MADE THESE...AND MOTHER WOULD COME OUT AND TAKE OUR PICTURE...STANDING PROUDLY BY .  LORRAINE AND I HAD...A 'GOOD ARM.'..(FOR A 'GIRL'...THEY WOULD SAY BACK THEN!)..WE WERE IN SNOWBALL FIGHTS...ALL THE TIME.  EACH OF US COULD THROW A SNOWBALL INTO THAT EXTREMELY HIGH CHIMNEY AT HARRISON SCHOOL, IN 5TH GRADE.  WALKING TO AND FROM THIS SCHOOL. THROWING SNOWBALLS WAS A DAILY OCCURANCE.  WE WERE NOT DISTRUCTIVE ...WITH THEM...EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE TIME...WHEN WE WERE IN HER YARD...THE SNOW WAS 'PERFECT' FOR SNOWBALLS..AND I DECIDED TO THROW ONE...WAY AHEAD OF THIS CAR, GOING BY...AND...WITH PERFECT PRECISION...'I NAILED IT'...RIGHT ON THE WINDSHIELD!..THE CAR...STOPPED IMMEDIATELY...AND THIS GUY CAME RUNNING UP TO US AND .....LORRAINE, SAID....'I DIDN'T DO IT!....SHE DID!'...SO I RECEIVED...THE LECTURE.  I ALSO REMEMBER THIS BIG KID WAS VISITING NEXT DOOR. HE HAD THROWN SO MANY SNOWBALLS AT ME...BUT TODAY..I HAD MY 'ARSENAL' OF SNOWBALLS...READY...HE WOULD ALWAYS SAY..'HA..HA..YOU CAN'T HIT ME!'.....WELL...I WAS READY..THE SNOW WAS EXCEPTIONALLY..STICKY, THIS DAY..I REMEMBER ALL THE TIMES I WOULD GET HIT ON MY LEGS...AND HOW THEY WOULD STING...SO...AGAIN HE WAS WALKING OUT OF THE YARD...AND I SENT MY 'DECOY' UP HIGH IN THE AIR...HE LOOKED UP AND SAID..'HA...HA...YOU MISSED ME...AND WITH SUPERB...ACCURACY...I 'NAILED HIM'...AND I DO MEAN...'NAILED HIM'...RIGHT IN THE CHEST!..I NEARLY KNOCKED THE WIND RIGHT OUT OF HIM!...(STAND YOUR GROUND...DON'T LET PEOPLE WALK ALL OVER YOU!...SAY SOMETHING!....DON'T LET IT 'FESTER' INSIDE YOU...I BELIEVE THE WORD IS...COMMUNICATE..(TALK....BUT ALSO...LISTEN)..DOES THE QUOTE..'ACTION SPEAKS...LOUDER THAN WORDS' ...MEAN ANYTHING TO YOU? ( I HAD SNOWBALLS..I DIDN'T NEED WORDS ON THIS DAY)
THEN THERE WAS THAT SKATING RINK...DOWN IN THIS HOLLOW... A POND FROZE EVERY YEAR.  WE WERE IN 'SOUTHEAST'...THEY ALSO HAD ONE IN 'NORTHEAST.'  EACH HAD A 'WARMING HOUSE' WITH THIS OLD SMALL FURNACE IN THE CORNER WHERE YOU COULD COME IN AND GET WARM...AGAIN.  WITH THE FIRE BURNING BRIGHTLY...WE WOULD 'HUDDLE' AROUND AND TRY TO GET THOSE...FROZEN TOES WARM AGAIN ...SO THEY WOULD ..'MOVE'...ONCE AGAIN.  WE WOULD WALK THOSE 7 OR 8 BLOCKS...SLIDE DOWN THAT 'SLIPPERY' HILL..AND PROCEED TO PUT OUR SKATES ON...WITH WOOLEN SOCKS.  THEN OUT ON THE ICE WE WOULD GO...EVERY KID... SKATED.  IT WAS GREAT EXERCISE..DIDN'T COST MUCH..WE HAD FUN!...SOMETIMES WE WOULD FORM THIS LONG LINE...(CRACK THE WHIP)...AND IF YOU WERE THE LAST ONE...LOOK OUT!..AFTER GATHERING UP ENOUGH SPEED...YOU LET GO...AND TRAVELING AT SPEEDS..(I HATE TO EVEN IMAGINE)...FINALLY, CRASHED INTO THE BANK.  I AM SURPRISED I NEVER BROKE AN ARM..OR SOMETHING!....YES..I KNOW THE TWINS LOST...YESTERDAY..BASES LOADED...NO OUTS?....WHAT CAN I SAY.  HOMEFIELD  ADVANTAGE...'IT AIN'T OVER....YET!..CE
