As a child growing up in Renfrew, Ontario, I remember snow and lots of it in the winter. I loved playing outside building forts and snowmen, but the most fun of all was sliding off the garage roof down into the backyard, about 40 feet. Wow! A snow hill in my own backyard. We would slide on a 'flying saucer' sled. The snow would start in mid-November, so by Christmas there was lots for sledding. Snow, snow, wonderful snow! What fun and great memories of Christmas long ago.
