Winter Wisdom


Years ago, the kids were out front building snow forts.  The sun had gone down so I kept an eye on them from the warmth of the house.

When I saw my child ready to eat a handful of snow I hollered, “DON’T EAT SNOW IN THE DARK!” Neighbours, outside at the time, made a point of mocking my choice of words.

I took the ribbing but still remain steadfast in my sentiment: One should not eat snow when lighting does not allow you to see colour variations. Full stop. No exceptions.

We live in a very dog friendly neigbourhood.
