We didn’t think about truck driving in winter or icy roads. No, we thought about warming by the fire (or heater) hopefully with some hot chocolate as our numb fingers slowly thawed.

We never do. We never really grow out of that sense of wonderment. Oh, I am sure there are a few of you who will say I am romanticizing childhood visions of winter, but why not?
