Well if winter has not hit you yet...lets hope later when it does you can make your own  Mr frosty and throw a few snow balls your self. A few rounds of ice skating would not go's on my list. I am sure hoping for snow this winter, we did not get it last year....we got the rain and cold. You have gathered I love the snow. You have to understand in New Zealand where I grew up we did not get the snow and here in Holland we don't get snowed in. 
If you only look on the up side and turn back the clock so you don't have a care in the world...yes it can be a lot of fun playing in the snow.
