No Sledding this Year

Not enough snow for sledding this year, at least so far. So in an attempt to show more kids having fun in the city, here are few photos from the past two winters:

Washington Park:

Two girls on sleds in Fairview Park:

Those pictures look like you had more fun than we had in my old suburban yard.

We look forward to taking our son sledding and have already brought him out on fountain square for skating.

Maybe there'll be more snow next year.

Mike I have more than 2 feet of snow on the ground up here. You are more than welcome to haul it away in a semi-trailer.

Mt Storm is great fun. The hills are long and tons of kids show up after a good snow. All the kids make for a fun time.

Who knows we may get lots of snow in February. But, I doubt it, as it usually melts by mid February anyway.

Dave,
but do you have any hills there?
