Things You Didn’t Know is a new series on Delayed Missives. It will probably recur every month or so and the content will vary, but I’ll always reveal one fun fact about me. Today’s Things You Didn’t Know is about winter.
Not sure if this will come as a surprise to you, but I love winter. I’ve been a winter sports enthusiast my entire life. It all started with skiing when I was a young girl, and a little bit later I picked up figure skating. I am not able to ski as much as I once did (where do you put skis in New York??). However, I still enjoy a good black diamond slope. I’m also a huge fan of off-trail skiing. Not that I recommend that. I don’t. Unless you really know what you’re doing.
One of my biggest regrets is not competing when I was an active figure skater. I dream a little bit every time I watch skating during the Olympics. Of course, I wouldn’t have ever made it to that level of skating. But the juniors? With practice I could have done that.

It should come as no surprise that I also love snow. If there’s a snowstorm, there is no way that I will not be out in it. Probably making snow angels or just rolling around. Maybe with a camera. I really miss making snow forts like I did when I was younger, as well as the epic snowball wars. Do you like snow or do you think it’s a bit of a nuisance? I tend to think it’s a nuisance later on, but freshly fallen snow? The best.
