Winter Snow / by Dermot McElduff

I fully admit that winter is my absolute favourite time of year. I love the cold, windy, wet, icy and snowy weather. I have no idea why but I feel like its more of a challenge and hence its more rewarding. I walk 30-40 minutes most mornings on my way to work and usually with a big grin on my face, while most others look misserable. Thoughi often smile when I pass othet obvious winter lovers.

One such winter lover, as it turns out, is mh son. My son experienced his first ever snowfall on the weekend, and he was almost as excited as I was to play in the white stuff.

With the help of the other kids in the neighbourhood we also managed to build his first snow man.

Getting him to come in for lunch was almost impossible, keeping him inside after he had eaten was just as big a challenge. I have no idea where we both get it from, pretty sure everyone else in my family hates winter, though thankfully not my wife!

Anyway this random post is in honour of all the lovers of winter out there!
