Exhilarating or Painful?

Exhilarating I’d say.  Painful? How is a little bit of snow going to hurt you?  Now tell me that!!.  Mind you, it was a little more than “a bit of snow”.  It was a regular blizzard and I was in it running through the woods and estate of Charleville Castle.  At first I was hesitant to go on as I looked up at a cloak of darkness, no a black mass in the sky swiftly coming my way and then the initial single flakes of snow  turning very quickly into a million falling feathers.  Any sane person would have turned back and headed for home but me and my fit of madness went on heading into the eye of the storm.  And it was exhilarating!!  Well there was one annoying thing about it.  The snow got so heavy on my cap that it started weighing down and falling into my eyes along with the odd flake of snow.  Not so annoying as a bit of a nuisance.  The “feathers of snow” were not so kind to my cheeks either leaving them tingling with cold.  Apart from all that I have to say it was a very pleasant experience and something that everyone should endure sometime.
