We crunched through the half inch or so of snow and headed into a comfortable and warm lodge that we would spend the night in
Recently, my wife and I were taking a road trip across a few states, heading north to try and find the closest area that had snow. It was during December break. I am a teacher, and as you would expect, I get two weeks plus a few days off during December and early January. My wife at this time was simply a homemaker, so she had no work obligations. Thus, living in such a hot and humid climate as we were, we decided to go seek out snow. We drove north, and were quite delighted at how the temperature continued to drop and drop as we went on our merry way, seeking out snowfall. Now, for anyone that’s already well used to snow and all of the annoyances that it can bring, we may seem quite silly to you. However, you have to understand that for those that are not used to a winter wonderland at all, seeing snow can be quite magical. Anyway, my car’s heater was working very well in keeping us nice and toasty during our drive. I distinctly remember that it took us about 400 miles before we finally had snow flurries falling on our car. We were ecstatic, but we kept driving. There were a couple towns in particular that we had set our sights on should a sufficient amount of snowfall start accumulating. Sure enough, as the sun began to set during our first day of travel, we figured we would go ahead and stop at a hotel nearby and rest for the time being. It was magical to step out of the heated car into the light dusting of snow on the ground. We crunched through the half inch or so of snow and headed into a comfortable and warm lodge that we would spend the night in. The room was snug and warm and the heating system felt fantastic! We would continue our journey the following morning, but for now, we rested peacefully in the warmth and comfort of the hotel room.
