Heart of the Home
With winter comes plenty of opportunities for winter stories related to weather conditions — snow, ice, sleet, freezing rain, blistering winds, and temperatures below zero.
Maybe you fell through ice on the pond or crashed a sled into a snowbank. Perhaps your neighbor called during a blizzard to say you had cows out. Maybe your windshield wipers froze up while driving in freezing rain and sleet.
No matter what the winter adventure, it’s always nice to come back to a warm home after a blustery day outside. So grab a blanket, a steaming cup of hot cocoa and enjoy the following CAPPER’s reader stories about winter. These winter tales will entertain you on a cold night.
