Tevillat Keilim in snow
Shalom to the Rav! There has been a lot of snow this season and me and a bunch of friends went on a trip to the snow. On the way we bought a new Barbecue and tongs and other utensils we need to make a barbecue there. When we sent to make the barbecue, we realized that we forgot to Tovel the utensils and we are not near nay Mikvah or body of water. Are we allowed to Tovel the utensils in the high snow? Are there any other solutions?

too late for kids observance
dear rabbi, I am requesting a little advice in the jewish spiritual mode. I have a desire for something I can no longer have. while I know one cannot wish for what they do not have, while best to be thankful for what one does have, I remain with some discomfort and wondered if you can add some words of wisdom. I was raised reform with some conservative overtones. We kept kosher in the house unless having pepperoni on paper plates, and my mother lit the candles silently each week. we went to the type of hebrew school where little was learned and presented in our synagogue only twice a year and went to reform jewish camp for 8 weeks each summer. the only place we were permitted to travel outside of the country in college was to Israel so I did. and then I married a reform man who does not teach our children much, and raised my kids for the most part the exact same way. until one day I discovered there was so much more I do not know. so many customs and deeds I never learned. shabbat guests, giving to charity, the concept of mitzvot, etc. I only learned this in the past five years. but my family remains reform. my husband and son live on the golf course most days. my 17 year old son plays hockey, golf, basketball and snowboards, he takes honors and AP class, and works part time. my other son is in college living his dream making videos and flying drones. Everybody seems to have found their nitch and they seem generally happy with it. but nobody really cares much about being jewish. nobody has a relationship with hashem or studies or has any remote interest. It is not their fault, I married someone who was not interested and I also showed little interest at the time. I had to step back from pushing my new found views on my family so I could remember that they have beliefs as well. I have been told to just live my life and practice in a way that works for me and they will see this and make their own choices. but if only I had started to learn earlier, I could have given my kids jewish ideals. I feel guilty for not doing this. I feel fake sometimes talking about non holy, torah or shabbat. my son will actually avoid the challah on Friday to make his point that he has his own ideals. I suppose they take after me in this independent way. I want to give my kids more of a jewish life, but they are in college and on their way and I feel I have lost that chance. I also feel regret for not bringing my children up with jewish life and jewish school, but I cannot go back. how can I be the mother I want and give my kids a jewish life when it is too to give them the upbringing of torah?
