There’s always something to howl about

Snow you can get outside with!

Greg posted a photo of snow, showing it as a great closing argument for Phoenix.  As usual, he’s right!  We had our first snow of the year at Lake Chelan and I just have to share it!  While Greg has a great point about the snow, take a look at these beautiful scenes.  For many, snow doesn’t mean being indoors at all.  Some of us like the snow!

The first snow means no lawn mowing for months!  People were out all over town enjoying the beauty of the day.  With the right equipment, it is hardly a hassle at all to deal with a little snow.  I have a big driveway, but a snow blower on the front of a tractor clears it quickly.

Arizona is a popular spot this time of year, even for folks from our area.  The snow does make walking more challenging.  This is not Seattle, and we have efficient plows that clear the roads, although they too are more of a challenge than dry pavement.  But, it is beautiful and we could not do our skiing, snowmobiling, snow shoeing or just playing around in all the white without it.  I just had to put up a few pictures for the other side of the story when it comes to snow!  With that, enjoy the warm Phoenix weather!

    You tell ’em, Al! What I can’t figure out is what do warm-weather kids say when asked, “How many seasons are there?”

    Probably, “One. Why, that’s not enough?”

    Unfortunately in my town, we don’t get a break from working on the lawn..
