This photograph of children playing and sledding in the snow was on the cover of the January 1919 Norwester magazine. On page 18 of the issue is an article titled "Snow" by George S. Burba, the editor of the Columbus Dispatch. In the article he discusses how snow is formed and implores readers to enjoy it. He presents an impassioned description of the snow as a "wavy, warpy garment of purity to shut out the North Wind, the biting tongue that would lap up the tender, growing plants of the earth."

    My great-grandma has a few pictures like this of her and her brothers playing around in the snow when they were little. The sleds that they used back then, though, were way different. Although I am fine with the plastic sleds that we use today, I would love to try out one of these old wooden sleds one day.
