Why I like the snow
As you probably know it snowed this week in Cornwall and we took full advantage of it.
It’s the first time for around 7 years we have had anything that has come close to being able to play in it, let alone getting the sledge out. Yes the sledge we bought 7 years ago and never used until this week.
Now I understand how many of you don’t like it, your work depends on easy travel, the elderly, the young, the schools etc etc but for many it is a real time of excitement and not just for the kids.
I guess the main things I like is the way we come together as a community like the way we look out for the neighbours, the offers of 4x4 rides for nurses, the concern for safety of others.
I live in a small town in Cornwall, like many others across the UK and when the snow came it brought out the best in people. As a family we walked to the local park, dragging our 7 year old sledge behind us in the hope there would be enough snow settled to simply ride down the bank with. The people we met on the way who we have never talked to before were full of excitement, of all ages and all wanted to share how happy they were.
And this is what it’s all about really isn’t it. Happy communities, interaction, of concern for others welfare, simple fun with little cost, building snowmen as fast as building new friendships and mugs of hot chocolate when arriving home and the knowledge that I often forget but the community I live in really is a great one.
