It's so unusual to me the difference in the climate after being relocated to New York State from the Philippines. I had never seen snow or felt a cold. What a shock it was. I am glad that there is different fun things to do outdoors in the winter. Riding a snowmobile with my son was one of the more exciting things that we've done. My husband decided to take me skiing that was a scary thing but after buying all the nice Ski Clothing I couldn't say no. I ended up on the bunny slope all day practicing. He stayed for a couple of hours then went down some of the big hills before we ended up setting in front of the big fire place at the lodge drinking hot coco with marshmallows. All in all it was a great experience.
