Some of those Dallas snow pictures are beautiful. Lol, but 15 inches is a "Snowpocalypse"?

I think am going to go with Atlanta with this one. There are mountains to the North of Atlanta and for a list of ski resorts in the Southeast check out SkiSoutheast.com

It's mostly the people who hate Summer that are wishing for Winter, it's only mid-Summer lol. Our average high this July was about 95 degrees which is certainly above average, we had more 90's than 80's, I think there may have been the same number of 100's as there were 80's.

Wow that's colder than here (negligible though).

Dallas has sharper changes in weather than Houston or Atlanta. That is the difference. This is because of proximity to the plains. Blows in quick and blows out quick. Nothing hangs around for long.

Great photos of something that I have sadly never experienced except in the mountains. To wake-up to a winter scene like Dallas had last winter would be a dream!

Flagstaff & Aspen are great places to see in the winter. You should check them out sometime. I take my snowboard with me each time I go to either of them in the Winter.

In my opinion, no other winter setting comes close to those two places. Chicago is great around Christmas time, but the day after Christmas you will start to feel like snow is more of a burden than a gift, especially when your holiday mood is gone. Some people like it until the day after New Years, then it is just totally a burden.

I would assume same for people of Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto and other places where it snows a lot.

But yeah, check out Aspen. I have a feeling you've seen Flagstaff already, but it's really beautiful especially when you go skiing or snowboarding at the San Francisco Peaks there.

I've been to Flagstaff but only during summer. The first time I actually saw it snowing was when I was in Lake Arrowhead a few years ago. According to weather records it actually snowed in Los Angeles in 1949. Does anyone know if it snows every winter in Dallas? Does it snow in Houston once in a while?
