Snow is on my mind today...probably because is is October 5th and it is 82 degrees right now on Long Island. Can anyone say global warming!?
Anyhow, due to this bizarre weather today I began to daydream about
snow while sweat poured from my pits. I began to think about the fun
things that will await me this winter. The activities! The freaking fun
Most people hate snow, I'm not one of them. I love it, I love seasons, I embrace the weather and wish it could last longer.
This is obviously not a list for those who can't stand the icy cold fluff.
1. Sleigh riding!
Hello! Who doesn't love sleigh riding!? Every year me and my
family go out to the Southampton Golf Course and ride down the famously
huge hill. They blocked it off a few years ago though...yes you suck
golf course owner dude... sucky suckitty sucker sucks. Come on let us
back in! Please?
2. Snowman Building!
Oh yeah, use your frosty building skills when it snows. I know, I
know, it's cold, I'm freezing! Wahhhh.... quit your whining and get to
building. There is nothing more magical than a snowman in the front yard
for people to view when they drive by. It's like a free Christmas lawn
3. Snowball Fight!
Hhahaha! Snowball fights can easily start up when it snows out, and
all you have to do is wait for your significant other to get home from
work...and....'sling'. This is how most snowball fights occur at my
house. It starts of friendly, then gets nasty, then friendly...and then
some little baby ends up crying. Bwhahaha!
4. Pee Writing!
Only boys and men can participate in this fun game. It's a game where
you have to try your best to spell your name, and your lovers name
inside of a heart on the snow before your pee runs out. Look at that
steam! Amazing! You can also draw pictures, or spell out cuss words for
others to see. It's gross, it's nasty...but hot damn it's hilarious.
5. Snow Angels!
Don't lay in the pee writing though! Everyone knows how to make one,
but how many here reading this can raise their hands and say 'I have not
made a snow angel since I was a kid'. No wonder you are so grumpy!
Trust me, making a snow angle gives you a sense of life, it's
energizing...and although it is childish, it's really therapeutic at the
Making a snow angel last year actually was what gave me back my
Christmas spirit. I had none at all last year, and I was surprised to
find that such a simple action could take me back to a time where
Christmas was magical and exciting. Try it! Please!
6. Igloo Building!
I can remember a time as if it were yesterday. Me and my dad were
outside after a huge snowstorm. Seriously there was about 4 feet of snow
on the ground, and instead of being the lazy sit and watch TV while
waiting for the snow to melt dad, he went outside and built me an igloo.
This event although it was so small and insignificant became a memory
that I will cherish forever. So moms and dads out there, remember that.
It's the little things that count.
7. Brain Freeze Game!
This game was played by my cousins and I when we were wee ones. We
would all chow down on the snow until we had a brain freeze. The last
person to have a brain freeze won the game. It sounds sick, it sounds
strange...but hell yes it was a rock on time.
8. Shoe Writing!
The best thing about snow as we all know, is being the first one to
walk in it. You look outside, and you see a fresh sheet of snow on the
ground...and would you look at that, not a single foot print in it.
Now you must hurry up, put on your clothes, and get your shoes...go
mark your territory by walking around in the front yard in a way so that
you spell your name out. When everyone else wakes up (especially
brothers or sisters) they will be pretty pissed off at you. But hey, you
were the first to mark that snow with your name. Oh yeah!
9. Snow Boarding!
How can you not think of snowboarding when you think of snow. Although
I truly suck at this sport (and nearly ever other sport known to man),
it's pretty fun...till someone sprains an ankle.
Last but surely not least. This is another sport I suck at. For those who rock the slopes though, bravo to you! Booyah!
Snow rules...if you hate snow, why not try some or even one of these activities...embrace the snow...it does not last long. At least where I am from.
Another gnarly activity to do in the snow is inner tube pulling. Tie it to the back of your dads truck, and away weeee go!
