We get the rain, we get the cold, but we don't get the snow. On those rare occasions when it settles there is great excitement. And everything stops. But it never lasts long.
Those of you who know what it's like to suffer from winter storms, freezing cold temperatures and snow that hangs on and on will probably tell me we're lucky. And I suppose we are. But just now and then it's beautiful and fun.
But I don't think today is going to be one of those days.
