A wood burning stove, that's what I'd like. A warming stew bubbling on the hob, sheepskin rugs under foot and on furniture to snuggle into. Puffa coats, wooly hats and gloves and snow boots waiting by the door for venturing out.
Yesterday trudging through 6 - 8 inches of the soft white stuff I saw:
a new baby swaddled well on a little plastic sledge being pulled by his Daddy;
children using a hill road normally thick with traffic as a toboggon run;
a very tall snowman;
a Jack Russell catching snowballs in his mouth and thoroughly enjoying it!
