1. Appreciate the beauty of it
2. Go out in it
3. Be equipped for it
A certain someone reading this blog gives me a hard time for my shoe-snobbery. This picture might illustrate why a woman in her thirties needs a good, tall pair of snow boots in these parts. (She also needs a good short pair, a good warm pair [treated, if leather], and a not-so-good junky pair for slipping on and off in the yoga studio.)
4. Ask for help when you need it
Today I built my first snowman. It didn't go well. Dear Minnesota friends, I believe it might be too late to teach me. But please, teach my children.
5. Hunker down
I'm well aware of my tendency toward cabin fever. Here's how we made it through the rest of the day today:
Little Einsteins (Have you seen this show? Adorable. Plus, my kid can say 'Tchaikovsky'.)
I can't believe I'm saying this, but as much as I'm ready for Spring, I'll miss the snow when it goes this year. Who knows-- I might actually get my big butt in a pair of skis next winter. Or maybe to snowman-making lessons, at the very least.
