Social Speaks: Snow Days

Let’s have some fun. When you were a kid, what did you do on a snow day? I used to go sledding with all the neighbor kids! We had a blast! How about you??

Connie VonSeggern Build snow forts with my sibblings…

Susan Reynolds-Seery Our school had a huge lot and would plow all the snow to the fence. The snow piles would be huge. Which was right behind my house. When my dad was actually home, we would make tunnels through the piles. It was one of the happiest and bestest moments ever. Then school would resume and all the kids would come and play in them too. I miss those days.
Leann Canarsky Jorgensen We would play outside all day in the snow! Go sledding, make snow angels…I can barely get my kids out the door!
Mike Gunderson Dad would pile the snow so high on the farm, I would dig tunnels.
Fay Schinck We would sled down Cemetery hill, and the pump house hill. Lol. We use to make snow angels, snowball fights…and on snow days we would bake also with mom.
Dee Johnson Sledding on the country roads.
Peggy Robinson Peterson Made hot chocolate scooped snow for the neighbors
Cindy Schorn Sledding and also baking and homemade hot chocolate
Patricia Lucero Depened the snow amount .. I remember a year we could make snow forts…. Going to Oakland Heights hill and sleigh or golf course hill… Times Penny Metheny would be on her horse and pulling me on the sled…. There are so many memories good old days
Cindy Schorn I also remember when really young getting snowed in at my grandparents in the country and being pulled around on an old car hood by the tractor and then having to try and get back to town through the single lanes with snow taller than the cars
Connie Larson The kids used to go to the Heights….its off limits now
Kathy Peterson Depended on the snow amount….we sledded and skiied through the orchard….until we were little frosty the snow people….then we could go in and melt…..with some hot chocolate….. those were the days…..fresh air and healthy exercise….frozen fingers and toes and the warmth inside the house…snuggled under blankets….
Suzanna Boyle Anderson Went sledding down the nursing home hill. Built a snowman. Drank hot cocoa and watched TV
David Mallette I remember not liking snow days….on the farm it meant more work outside. Scooping feed bunks too feed cattle, scraping the hog platform several times, etc. Just meant a lot of work….but I would rather do that than spend 2 to 3 hours in the car to go 20 miles to work like I’ve done a couple of times the last 2 weeks…
