my five year old son overheard me saying that I hoped that the recent downpour of rain would wash away all of the snow that’s left on our driveway and lawn. to this, my newly trained little skiier said “mom, I heard you say that you didn’t want any snow, why did you say that?” and then he added, “and why do they throw salt down to melt the snow on the roads, why can’t they put all of the snow onto the lawn?!” it made me chuckle. he’s got a point. the more snow on the lawn the more sledding we can do!
