This is a sponsored post with Lake Placid and Mums the Word Network. All opinions are my own.After the over 9 feet of snow that Boston had to deal with last winter, my version of the perfect snow day changed considerably. I used to think that getting 2+ feet of snow and being stuck at home with the family would be the perfect snow day. Then, it happened, again, and again, and again, and you don't want 6+ feet of snow on the ground at once, especially if you have to shovel it yourself. At least we had a snow blower to help last year. Otherwise I don't think we would have made it through the winter. I did have to replace the shear pin after the Sunday newspaper got caught in the system. Didn't realize how easy it would be to replace until after the season but we're ready for the new winter, and then we see 70 degree weather for Christmas eve.
Now, I think the perfect snow day is enjoying a dog sled race or perhaps going out on a snowmobile. Maybe even bobsledding. I think that would be fun, especially after my son is old enough to drive himself.
