I'm trying really hard to embrace winter this year. Saturday, I ventured out in the cold and wind in search of some winter beauty and fun. If you live in Marion and there is snow on the ground, you can bet someone is at Harding Memorial sledding.
Remember Harding Memorial? I showed it to you here. It is the final resting place for President Warren G. and First Lady Florence Harding.
Usually after a snow, the Memorial hill is littered with sledders. I was surprised to only find a group of four people at the Memorial Saturday morning. Perhaps it was too early in the day.
In a moment of stupidity, I left my gloves in the car. As I walked toward the hill, the wind was at my back and my hands were in my pockets so I didn't notice the cold too much.
I watched the sledders for a bit and snapped some pictures as they came down the hill...and then...I noticed...um...it's cold out here.
Turning to go back to the car, a gust of Arctic air smacked me right in the face and my car looked like it was 5 miles away, UPHILL....ok maybe it was only 200 yards. I felt like the skin on my forehead was going to split and I experienced an acute case of brain freeze.
Embrace winter my ...
I'd rather be here.
