There are parts of the United States stuck in a brutal heat wave. The people who live in these regions are suffering through triple-digit temperatures. And if you aren’t from Arizona and used to such temperatures, a heat wave can be quite horrifying. It’s so hot that it turns you into a sweaty lump on your sofa.
What is even worse is that this is just the beginning of what looks to be a very hot summer. Some of you have already had it and sit around dreaming about snow and short days.
When the thermostat hits 102 degrees and the heat starts cracking your windshield, your thoughts turn to the bitter cold days of winter and all of the activities you would bundle up and engage in. Clear Vision Auto Glass, your windshield repair service in New Jersey, offers these winter activities you can’t wait to do again.
Make a Snowman
Making a snowman is a wonderful activity that you can do with your kids. It’s a family activity that promises fun for all. In addition to being fun, building a snowman gives you a little exercise and enables you to bond with individual family members.
But best of all, building a snowman is a winter activity you do when it’s cold outside and there is snow on the ground. At this very moment, it feels like lava pouring down the street in this extreme heat.
When you think about snow camping, you get caught up in short and cold nights snuggling up with that special someone in front of the campfire and sipping hot chocolate. It’s a far cry from drowning in your own sweat while driving home from work.
Winter camping also means not having to share your campsite with snakes and bugs. You can also be pretty sure there aren’t any other campers at the campsite. The worst thing that can happen when winter camping is the chance of frostbite. Which is a lot better than suffering 3rd-degree burns on the bottom of your feet running across a sandy beach when it’s over 100 degrees outside.
As humans, we have been sliding in the snow for thousands of years. It just comes naturally to us. It is so natural that kids take to skis very easily. If you worry about them speeding down the side of a mountain, try cross-country skiing instead.
Just imagine taking your family on a beautiful nature trail, stopping at a peaceful spot for lunch and heading back home and a warm fireplace in the afternoon. It sure beats watching your kids suffer a sunburn in the excessive heat.
Snowshoeing is the best way to get around in deep snow. You remember what it’s like to walk in the snow, right? Snowshoeing is great because you get to exercise while enjoying nature. And you do it in the winter, when it’s nowhere near 100 degrees.
And if you have suffered a cracked windshield, give Clear Vision Auto Glass a call and we can have it fixed in very little time. So you can then go on with your very hot day.
