Show Me Your Christmas Snow Answered

Picture of

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:https://www.instructables.com/id/Baja-Snowman-Gift-Card-or-Embellishment/ . Thanks again for sharing your thoughts and do have a splendorous day!

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!

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. :)

"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

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 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.

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.

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)
