Everyone around us seems to be getting alot of snow & ice. It's not so bad here. High of 30F here today. Mom is still here & lots of family snowed in or are in the middle of an ice storm. Looks like nobody will be coming down this weekend.

When I was a kid, we would get big piece of cardboard (a broken box) and place it over the storm drain. The rain would build up in the gutter and we would play in it as if it was our swimming pool. No adults called us in because it was raining. And no adults got angry that we were all wet. They just put a towel at the back door so we could dry off before we went in the house. Or we let the sun dry us after the rain stopped and the sun came back out. No one told us that a thunderstorm or lightening was dangerous.

Sounds like fun! Good memories....
We could never go out when it was raining but when it was done raining we were outside jumping in the mudpuddles letting the black mud squish between our toes.

Weather today here was a high of 33F. It seemed much colder as the wind was so strong. They are talking 40F tomorrow but it sounds like freezing rain isn't to far behind.

those were some fun times! i miss those simpler times, and a climate not fraught with the omnipresent dangers of mass murderers, pedophiles, drugs and a generation obsessed with violence and porn.

I am a strong believer that a parent's job is to keep a child safe, teach them what they need to know and give them happy memories that they can carry through life. Trying to keep them safe today, doesn't leave much room for making memories.

A number of years ago my granddaughter was sitting on her girlfriend's front steps. She was 13 at the time. Some creeps pulled up in a car and one got out. Tried to grab her to get her into the car. She had the good sense to run in the opposite direction that the car was facing. And by luck it brought her home. Her GFs next door neighbor saw what was happening and called the police. They were there in a flash and saw what was happening. Three creeps went to jail and on trial. GUILTY! And their car got towed and put up for auction. That is not the kind of memory you want your kid to have. But it was a lesson she has not forgotten. You never think it will happen to your kid, but it can and does.
