I'm in Denver, Colorado, for Christmas with my brother and his wife. The city has been hit by a snow storm - just in time for a White Christmas. Its not a bad storm - a few inches is not going to slow down a city like Denver very much, but the 6-8 inches was enough for the two newbies.
They've heard about snow - they've seen pictures of snow - they've thought about snow, but snow is something that must be experienced. So - it was out the door at first chance to see what the stuff is like.
She found out its great to throw the stuff around. This was powder snow - not good for snowballs. She created her own snow showers. Her laughter said more than words - she was having a lot of fun.
(Be sure to click on the photos - you will see a much larger version if you do.)
So - - - what does snow taste like? She had to find out. My brother had to remind her not to eat yellow snow. (Yes - he has a dog.) There being no yellow snow in sight, she scooped up hands full and tested them for texture and taste.
He had to have a new Facebook profile photo - as well as something to prove he is a little crazy. Yeah - it was cold - but he just sucked it up and ran around in the snow and 25 degree temperature for a little while. He wasn't any worse for the wear and later rode the light rail service into downtown Denver to see a friend.
