It snowed last night. We got five inches of new snow. That's almost half a foot. I'll go outside soon and shovel the snow off of the sidewalk so that no one slips.

Everyone is very excited about the snow. There is just a week left before Christmas and the snow puts people into a holiday mood. It brightens everything during the day. Light reflects off of the white surface of the snow at night. This makes it easy to see in the darkness.

It will remain cold and snowy for the next three months. That's okay. There are many fun things to do when there is snow on the ground. We can go sledding or skiing. We can also go skating as soon as the lakes freeze.
