I Love Snow Days

Anyone who knows me, knows that I do not love snow days Maybe when I was five years old I liked playing in the snow but not for much longer.  That stuff is cold and wet, yuck.  Even when I went skiing I hated the snow.  I've seen a couple skiing simulations on TV and the internet but not in real life.  One was designed for athletes to train on when there was no snow.  It was a conveyor belt of sorts and it didn't look like much fun. There's an indoor mountain somewhere, I think it might have been Japan but it's just as likely in Dubai.   A little more interesting but they used fake snow which is just as wet and cold as the real stuff.   Well now that I'm living in Paradise I don't expect to ever have to deal with that stuff again, except on cards, now that's snow that I can handle.

By the way, I also love the beach but hate sand.  Go figure....
