A Good Snow

We had a good snow . 
I waited to go sledding at night when everything is magical.
When I took the big sled out the snow sparkled like diamonds in the outdoor lights.
It didn’t take long before I realized the sled was too heavy for me to pull alone.
The snow was falling . The wind was blowing. It was cold.
I took one trip down the hill on the sled. 
 I was done with sledding.

I walked around leaving a trail of footprints behind me.
I knew it wouldn’t be long before they filled in again.
I tried making a snow angel. 
All that did was get me wet and make me colder than before.
The snow was getting deep.
I grabbed my sled and headed home.
I left my boots at the door, hung my hat on the chair.
The best place to be on a cold ,wet, snowy night is in front of a blazing fire in your fireplace. A few favorite books and your best friend Buddy make it even better.
