Feeling the Weather

"This is what packing snow feels like, Hunter. Come see!"

Hunter thoroughly enjoyed experiencing the weather this morning, first hand.

It had snowed about six or eight inches the night before, so there was a bunch of snow piled up on the window sill. He handled it for a while, then pitched it outside.

This lasted until all the snow from the window sill was gone. He then decided to climb up by the window and just stared at the winter wonderland for a long time.

Sure, it was a little cold outside. And yes, it took up some time. But we got to talk about where snow comes from, and how this crunchy packing snow was different from the powdery stuff we got last week. And of course, he simply got to experience the weather: touching snow without his mittens on, smelling the air without his scarf on, and just soaking it all in: the things mundane to adults but exciting, interesting, and captivating to little children.

"Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail?"

Job 38:22

Hunter is 2 years, 10 months old
