Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

Yes, we have had our first snow fall in West Virginia. And while it is quite pretty, I do not like driving in it. Since going green, and purchasing a Prius, I have dreaded the slick roads. Now while my car does save me money in gas (I basically spend approximately 60 dollars a month in gas), I think that snowy roads and slick conditions are not friendly to my eco-friendly vehicle. In other news, the snow is pretty. But it makes me want to move back to Florida. I missed it while I was away. I longed for changing weather conditions and not just "hot" to "not so hot" to "hurricane rain" to "hot". I remember my first Christmas there and seeing one of those blow-up Christmas thingamajigs in a neighbor's yard. I thought it looked odd. A snow globe tossing about bits of fake snow sitting in a green yard, under a palm tree. It didn't have the Christmas feel. While I appreciated the fact that I wasn't cold, because I grew up in West Virginia, Christmas needed that winter feel to it. Yes, I know that it doesn't matter where you are, but who you are with! Still!! I hope everyone who got snow dumped on them is staying warm. And I hope everyone who is in warm weather is enjoying it!


  • My grandfather lived in WV, and I remember the roads that we had to drive through to get to his house in the foothills. I wouldn't imagine it would be fun with snow and ice.

  • Winter is definitely here in Idaho as we have snow on the ground and temperatures in the single digits. Today felt like a heat wave as we almost made it to 30. Supposed to be almost 40 on Sunday so I might have to break out the sun screen and shorts. Stay safe and warm/
