When life gives you an unpleasant situation, you have two ways to deal with it:  embrace it or let the situation cast a cloud upon you.  When it comes to winter, I fall into the latter camp.  Try as I might, there is just nothing about the cold weather and snow that appeals to me.

Fortunately, others do not share my sentiment.  One family in town provided enjoyment for many by sculpting a giant Olaf snowman in their front yard.  It was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise gloomy season.

What can you do to make the best of things?  Is there something that can only be done during extenuating circumstances (e.g.: a foot of snow) that can’t be done otherwise?  Can you come together and actually enjoy things that others disdain?  How could you leverage a seasonal phenomenon to your advantage?

Do you want to build a snowman?” asks the Frozen song.  No, but I’m glad this family did!
