When Jonas receives the snow and sledding he has several responses.  First he is surprised.   It was such fun and he had never really experienced that type of fun before.  He also feels bad when he realizes that the Giver no longer has that memory.  He also feels inquisitive.  He has so many questions about the experience. 

After dreaming about the experience that night, he also begins to feel his alienation from his friends.  Heknows that this experience is something he cannot share with them and that it separates him form their lives.
