Memories of new england snow.....as a kid

Do you remember building the snow forts?taboganning down bridge passes,the snow tunnels,all that snow at the end of your drive way, looking out the window at night at the snow plows passing your house, the sound of the truck pushing the snow ? maybe mom even out there playing with you, my mom use to make big animal sculptures, rabbits,and all kinds of animals,she was good at it, but she was a artist too! always snowball fight, that was always a way to have fun.even hitting the house windows with them,telling your sister,whos looking out the window at you to come out side, i"ll get ya! making snow angels was fun too. i had skis to and would go down on them in the neighbors yard,on their hill. oh and of course the water hose was used to make a ice rink for ice skating,and also time spent on ponds near by to iceskate.mom use to put bread bags in our boots to try to hold some of the snow out of our boots, never really helped, lol. playing ice hockey on our street was fun too,course with the neighborhood boys was the main pleasure! watching the news to see if school was cancelled for to much snow , was the best!eatting a good breakfast of pancakes ,mom would make cocoa to, was also yum! and when dad brought home the chipmunks christmas album , i was so excited, played it for hours on end! those big old bulky snow suits , they'd make noise when you"d wear them,squish squish sound. then my folks in 1977 decided it was to cold in new.hampshire and wanted to move to a milder climate and we moved to missouri,hmm stll cold here, and not hardly ever sunny in the winter like back home in new england!
