Default Photo Finish?

Look at the poll, guys. I can't believe it's this close at this writing. Palm trees should be further ahead than this.

Snow for sure. I despise hot and humid weather.

Except in Houston where we have pine trees and palm trees. Plant almost anything here and it will grow. We've got palms scattered throughout my neighborhood. My next-door neighbor has a palm in his backyard I can see out the window as I type. Give me palms! I can manage heat better than cold.

I'm not seeing palm trees as particularly nice or interesting trees. Now you guys in California, I like those gnarly freaky looking eucalyptus trees you've got more than your palms. When I saw my first one, I couldn't stop looking at it. I don't know why Hollywood doesn't use them in horror movies other that that you guys are probably so used to seeing them, it never occurs to movie people how scary they are.

I prefer pine trees. I've had them in NY, Maryland and Tennessee and in a vacation town in New Hampshire. Since I'm looking at them right now outside my window here in Tennessee (temps in high 90s today), I don't associate them with snow except maybe at Christmas time.

Palm trees. I'm not a big fan of the cold. Nice thing about where I live though if I want it I can drive up to Big Bear or one of the other mountain resorts. If I'm really feeling the need I can rent a cabin up there in the winter. I'd much rather enjoy it on my terms than have to dig out of it every day during the winter.
