    Still pretty, though. We got some too but not as much. I'm sure my folks got more upstate.

    It is just cold here. No pretty stuff on the ground. I am hoping to not have any more for the rest of the winter. I am soooo ready for spring!

    Cheers,

    Cool

    That looks sooooo familiar, and very cold. lol When we decided to move from Michigan I looked for a place where snow has never been seen. I'm into palm trees and humidity now. lol That snow stuff makes for pretty pictures but I had enough of shoveling it to last me a lifetime!

    We have crocuses, daffodils and forcythia almost ready to bloom here.

    We may be far north and suffer from lack of daylight, but the winter is actually pretty mild, at least by my native New Englander standards!

    Wink

    The joke I was telling the year we moved....
    A man from Michigan, now retired and ready to move, loaded up his car and filled the small uhaul with a few things he'd decided to take. The last thing to be loaded was an old but shiny snow shovel, it's handle worn from years of use. Without a look back off the man drove, heading South to a warmer place. After what seemed like a week, he began pulling out the snow shovel when he stopped. Each time he'd approach a local and ask if they'd ever seen one before. Repeatedly the person would nod yes and explain that it was a snow shovel. Finally one day, halfway down to the Florida Keys, an old grizzled looking man carrying a well used fishing pole was questioned did he know what this was? No came the answer, was it to make sand castles asked the old man? The retired man from Michigan smiled.....he'd found his new home....a place where snow shovels would never be needed again.

    My hubby wouldn't let me tie a snowshovel to the back of our uhaul....I wanted to paint 'Florida or Bust!' on it.

    Well I may be one of the fortunate ones to live in a country of mild winters and hot summers, but it is always nice to wake up to that white dazzle outside! It's good to see the change of seasons, imho it gives you the feeling of the passage of time.

    time passes quickly enough with reminders like this

    I do enjoy winter but it is just way too long in this area. If the seasons went according to the calendar, that would be fine with me.
