It does not embarrass me to say I love snow. I love to walk in it, letting it gather on my hat and shoulders. I love to push it aside with a shovel. I love to walk behind my snowblower watching the stuff shoot out of the chute and over onto the lawn. I love to clear my own driveway, the drives of my neighbors north and south, the sidewalks of the set of houses. An old retired dude can still have some fun, I guess.
