But I grew up and, when I think of snow and ice now, I think of shoveling the driveway, scraping off my car and driving in slippery, sometimes hazardous conditions. I worry about slipping and falling and what that could involve. Because I’m an adult and I know what could happen. If I have an accident, I know what that will entail: dealing with insurance companies, car rentals, etc. So, I’ve come to see snow and ice as a bad thing and, although I do see the beauty in a freshly fallen snow, I no longer love and appreciate Winter. I’ve lost that.
