Winter re-runs; snow in April.

I have lived in Alberta all my life; so snow in April (or May, or June) is not a huge surprise. But what to do to keep the kids entertained. The outdoor rinks have long since melted and the drive to ski hills on a slick, slushy highway is less than appealing.

"What about tobogganing?!" exclaims one of the kids. Hmmm, that is a good idea.

Except for one small problem; no toboggan. It is also highly unlikely that any store will carry them at this time of year. What we do have is one small crazy carpet with some chicks email address on it. (Cory can explain that).

One crazy carpet for the four of us is not going to be much fun. Then it dawns on us we have hundreds of pieces of plastic in storage. A few 4 x 8, some 4 x 4 and umpteen lawn sign size.
Some with Cory's name, some with mine (being kept for future use) and even better some with my maiden name...... destined to be recycled.

Have you figured it out yet? I am speaking of election signs. And sure enough they make an awesome make shift Alberta snow sled.
