Snow


As I was leaving to go to church this morning I discovered little white dippin dots covering the grass. I'm sad. I'm not ready for snow. We totally skipped Autumn this year. Just when the leaves were starting to change color the snow has to cover them all and kill them.

I grew up in Houston, Texas where it never snows. The one year it snowed the snow melted before it even hit the ground. I was in elementary school and I remember all the teachers letting us go outside and play before it stopped snowing. It was super awesome.

I was so excited when I moved to Utah 5 years ago just for the snow. It was awesome having a real "White Christmas" for a change. In my first winter in Utah I rapidly grew to hate the snow at the commencement of the winter season. Snow is very serene and picturesque, but very treacherous and daunting to drive in. Even after 4 winters here I'm still scared to death of driving in the snow. I'm the person driving at a snail's pace in the slow lane all winter long.

Snow wouldn't be that bad if it only lasted about 3 months instead of 8 some years. I guess Grant and I will need to move somewhere that enjoys all 4 seasons.

I was having fun using the thesaurus when I did this blog. Forgive me. I think I got a little carried away!

What you guys need to do is move down here to tucson. The winters are awesome and in my opinion the summers really aren't that bad. Before you complain, go spend a summer in Kuwait and then see if 105 is really all that hot :).

I hate snow too. In my opinion, Monterey was the perfect place to live. 70 all year, sunny, gorgeous.

so I guess there is a time that you aren't a lead foot driver :-) Nice thesaurus use! I remember that year it snowed in Texas when we were in elementary school. It was awesome.

I can sympathize with you. I hate driving in the snow too. I bet there are lots of drivers that get really angry at me for driving like a grandma.

Well, I don't hate the snow, but I do prefer fall or spring. Funny thing, I prefer perfect temperatures! What I hate is cloudy weather that lsts for days. I really need to see the sun, even if it's cold.

I totally remember when it snowed in elementary school! And I agree with you that fall was totally skipped this year. I hate that!
