I grew up in Minnesota where the winters are longer, colder and snowier that here in Illinois. Winters were a lot of fun back then. There were sledding hills, skating rinks, snowball fights and snow forts.

When we got cold, we went inside to warm up.  Then headed back out for more winter fun.

If you’re like me, winter isn’t nearly as much fun now that you’re an adult. You need to shovel or snow blow your driveway and sidewalk. The heating bills must be paid. Of course, there’s also the hassle of winter driving.

But hey, we’ve been through this before and managed to survive.  We can do it again.  Before you know it, birds will be chirping, the grass will be green and you’ll want to be outside again!

Hang in there!
