Pat Shingleton: "It's All Downhill From Here...."
A brief thaw out is temporarily in place through many sections of the country. Snowstorms years ago shutdown school and once we fulfilled the directive of clearing walks and driveways, it was sled-riding time. Windover Avenue was the starting point of the sledding trail, taking us over Longview Drive, across Aunt Mae's front yard, into the adjacent woods below. By sanding the rust from the rails on the Radio Flyer from the previous winter, the trip was slicker. An additional coating of paraffin slicked the skids even more. The ride down-exhilarating; going back-a task. Mom had us overly bundled to the point where we could hardly move. At the bottom of the trail was a bonfire with apples and potatoes, wrapped in foil, tucked in the coals.
