I grew up with the snow and miss it very much. I love the way it makes everything look and the fun you can have in it. I did have some close calls back up North too. I can remembe the Blizzard of 78 very well and times when snow made it impossible to get over the river and out of Hartford. But typically up there, snow one day and it is cleaned up by the next.

BTW, I was at our new CH house last Friday en route to Florida (where it is definitely not snowing). We met some of the neighbors, who were very nice. We'll be stopping back up there on Monday on our way home. I'll be sure to bring some Florida sun with us for all the warm-weather enthusiasts, like me. :-)
Hey Michgc, looking forward to seeing you in Chapel Hill!

Ha! Ha! Acutally, I grew up in upstate NY - lots and lots of snow while growing up (they don't get as much anymore it seems). I have also spent time in Indiana, and was living in DC during the 2010 "snowpocalypse." What can I say, I love the stuff!

I cannot believe I am saying this....


Some cooler weather will be welcome.
I put out over 300 spring flowering bulbs this fall, and I want them to chill a little.

How about this...3 days of temps in the 60's with sunshine and then 4 days of temps in the 40's with sunshine?!! That way I can wear the new boots I bought yesterday!!!

And since rain is good, let it rain between the hours of 12 midnight and 5 AM!
