One kid's fun is another kid's tears

Finally, enough snow to play in. The handful of dustings we've had so far this winter have left the kids wanting to sled in them. Last night's fall produced enough of the white stuff to actually bring out the sleds.

Snow, however, creates very different reactions in very different children.

Some might relish the white dust and be so glad to be outside running in it that they completely ignore the cold, sleet and red cheeks.

Others, in contrast, might be rendered paralyzed by the precipitation and spend twice as much time getting bundled up than they are actually outdoors.
