Winter wonders

A winter snapshot.

"I still think I'm 19, " said Roger duBois, 64, of Minneapolis, as he tobaggened down the gentle slopes of Lake Hiawatha Park on Tuesday.

DuBois, who was laid off from his job as a computer parts salesman in September and who also lives with chronic lymphatic leukemia, doesn't let a winter day go by without snow shoeing for an hour and doing some sledding, even when the temps are bitterly cold.

"Now I'm alive to see my grandchildren and to play," he said, adding "you've gotta try this."
