SHOUT OUT to our fans in the MIDWEST, USA. First let us say that in the world of EntertainingYourself.com, a Sunny Spot is really a state of mind. Therefore, not every Sunny Spot is necessarily warm, or even sunny for that matter! In the Midwest this week, you are in the midst of a Winter Wonderland! Perfect for Entertaining Yourself indoors and out! With so many flights cancelled, traffic delays, school and business closings, not to mention really chilly temperatures (friends in South Dakota reported wind chills of minus 35degrees F) it makes sense that many of you would be snuggling up inside, sipping hot chocolate and what else? Surfing the web of course!
Then there are the brave souls that are willing to bundle up and get outside. We’ve heard tales of 7 -10 ft drifts in places like Wisconsin and Minnesota, with snow quickly piling up in the Dakotas, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio too!
If you dare, it is the perfect weather for hiking, snowshoeing, cross country and downhill skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing, sledding, snowmobiling, skating and the old standby’s: building snowmen and waging snow ball fights!
Once you’ve had a chance to warm up again, we’d love to hear from you. What’s your favorite way of entertaining yourself on a cold snowy day?
ps: Over the coming weeks and months, EntertainingYourself.com will showcase indoor, as well as outdoor, recreational activities and hobbies. Look for articles ranging from Brewing Beer to playing indoor Hockey (both ice and field)! Stay tuned…
