The winter of 2013-14 may seem brutal, but as a kid in Bedford, Quebec (just a few miles north of Vermont), in the late 1950s, I loved winter. We played outside all day, summer and winter (no electronic distractions!), and this shot shows a bunch of us on a twelve-foot pushed-up snow pile on the laneway of a neighbour. Many snowball fights and slides ensued. This is circa 1957 and I'm the little guy in the front with the slippery plastic boots, great for traction (not!). View full size.
