Show Me Your Christmas Snow

I thought it would be fun to see everyone's pictures of their white Christmas.  We have been in a drought so the snow is very much welcomed.  It only snows a few inches a year here and usually melts the next day.  I think this snow is going to stick around for a couple of days.  If you don't have snow pictures to share, post a picture of Christmas lights or a video. I found this link with thousands of lights.

Thanks so much for sharing.  I like snow until it gets messy and muddy. I also do not like cleaning the windshield in the cold.  I kind of like the warmer winters : ).  However I did make an Instructable today for those that are missing the Christmas snow. You might get a kick out of it.  If your interested here is the link:http://www.instructables.com/id/Baja-Snowman-Gift-Card-or-Embellishment/ . Thanks again for sharing your thoughts and do have a splendorous day!

So I assume you like the warmer climates? I am a spring, summer, fall, girl! I'll by pass winter any day! Sunshiine
I live in a temperate-zone, we get snow but not much / often. I take the seasons as they are, and it's dark cold and wet at the moment...
Happy Christmas!

Mr. L. I have a hunch your weather is a lot like Washington State. However we didn't get the fog that you probably do. I am making an instructable as I write, that will accommodate the snow loving folks that live in a no-snow zone! He is my melting snowman! I have worked all day on this little guy. It took a lot of figuring out how to make it work, but I got it in the bottle! I have had sooooo much fun with this one. I am checking for errors now! Yay! Happy Christmas to you also!

I'm sorry...I didn't mean to get all mushy & mellow dramatic on everyone..

TY Sunshiine.

James! I did not take it that way. It is OK to express ones feelings in my book! Life is a drama anyway you look at it. It can be a exciting drama, sad drama, mellow drama, or grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr drama. We all go through it at one time or another. Drama is a character builder! And thats the truth! Although it is hard to embrace it I admit. But when I look back . . . . I would not have changed it for anything. I am who I am today because of it. Thanks again for sharing!

the sign of a great friend is when all your other "friends" have left but the great one sticks around thru thick & thin.

I think I have found that kind of friend. :)
sunshiine (author)  SIRJAMES092 years ago
I hope to be that kind of friend. There used to be an old song that I really liked. Watermelon wine. It really is a good song.
"Watermelon Wine" by Tom T. Hall aka, "The old story teller"
I saw him perform & was even lucky(or blessed) enough to meet him.
wonderful Man he was...so down to earth...normal like you & me he was.

at one of his concerts, there was a drunk that wanted to speak with him about something....a s Mr.Hall tried to get out the way & let security handle him, Mr.Hall slipped & fell off the stage....

I got a nasty head wound out of it & a broken arm, AND free tickets to the rest of that years concerts...Mr. Hall didn't have a scratch on him.

I will never forget how Mr.Hall paid for the ER & everything. I still have that cast at my mom's place gently packed away. :)

as crazy as this may sound...and I hate winter with a passion, I miss my snow & my home...

Ever since I left Indiana, nothing in my life has been the same...or peaceful even.

I wanna go bak home to where the Chicago winters spill over into Indiana & cause so much chaos it's not funny. Maryland is a beautiful state, but after about 1 yr, it's still not home.

I am sorry Mr. J. Have comfort in knowing that everyday brings on a new and meaningful experience in life. Sometimes we are where we are for a big reason. Embrace the hidden reason and perhaps a new experience will bring about changes that will send you back to where your heart is. Thanks for sharing. Sunshiine
I Google earth your address. Aren't you at a SeaPort? That's an entire new world to explore. Give change a chance.... it could grow on you.
Even if I tried, I can find no fault with Maryland...it's just the people I live with & the fact that I am so far away from my family that make the better part of my life miserable.

I may fight with & complain about my family, but I love them all the same...and miss them like crazy. I'm used to visiting the family 2x a week & my mom at least 3 x a week.. she's up there in age & it kills me that I can't see her as often as I used to. I guess I'm just afraid that one day when I'm not there......

The weather around my place has been crazy, it snowed in September and now there's not to much. :P
sunshiine (author)  monsterlego2 years ago
The weather from all over has been weird. I think last year we had snow in June. Of course it was just a small amount but still weird. I love your avatar, that is cute.
Sunshiine
Thanks!

LOVE the Buggy!!!
Yeah, it's cool. It's a real antique carriage in front of a house around here. The lights are flashing, and it took a few tries to get a good, clear photo of it, but I like how it turned out. :-)

After last winter being one of the coldest and snowiest on UK record, all we have this year is drizzle, and a forecast that tomorrow will reach 11°C.

sunshiine (author)  Kiteman2 years ago
Hmmmm this is interesting! The weather patterns have been changing all over. I am glad I posted this because it is fun to see what is going on in different parts of the world. Thanks for sharing Mr. K. Sunshiine

We get 60+ inches of snow a year. Last year set records.

This year--almost none so far (but we've smashed our annual rainfall record, exceeding that in Oct). The climate it is a-changin'.

All I can offer is pic from the last two years...

Now this is impressive! I love snow at a distance, It is fun for about 30 minutes or . . . . . maybe an hour. After that well, I don't miss it at all. Too much work! You are correct, the weather is changing. It is kind of weird. Thanks for sharing.

"Snow" is a 4 letter word... but so is "Sand". ;-)

I love this picture! Now your talking! I like snow to experience from a distance. I do not like walking in it, when it freezes, and after it melts. Other than that it is nice and fluffy stuff! Thanks for sharing this picture,I want to come there and make you dinner and . . . wash the dishes!

Unfortunately, I have not any snow to show you.

However here in Argentina today is a cold day, after a very hot and humid week. Yesterday, the weather began to cool, now the TV says 17º4 C (63º3 F)
sunshiine (author)  rimar20002 years ago
Thanks for sharing rimar2000! 63 is not too shabby though. Thanks for sharing!
