I talk about how I want winter to end, and wouldn’t you know it, the next day we get a perfect, beautiful snowfall with temperatures just below freezing and no wind: beautiful conditions for sledding and snowball-making. We’ve got about 3 or 4 inches on the ground now, including this fractal-looking slush that settled on a pond in southeast Fayetteville.
I walked around Huntsville Road for a while before heading to Wilson Park, which has popped up on this blog once or twice. I figured a few people might try the park’s hills for sledding. I underestimated that one.
People are very patient with my floating around with a camera. Laughs sounded out from every direction, and the energy was infectious. One guy even let me try a toboggan for the first time in years. (I’m 24 and sound so old.) It’s obviously below freezing, but the air felt oddly warm, comfortable enough to be outside for hours. If we’re stuck with winter, this is how it should be.
I hope winter’s bringing you some fun.
Thanks for looking,

Sometimes I follow your twitter feed. I was really interested in reading your article yesterday; too bad your newspaper won’t let me see it online without a paid subscription. 😦 (Evidently I’ve already read the “maximum number” allowed.) As usual, great job on the snow photos; enjoyed the sledding ones!
Yeah, our paywall is unusually strict. I’m sorry about that. Thanks very much!
