i don't love snow

There is no snow where I live. Of course not. It's Carlsbad.  I live here because of the good weather.

I don't want to live where it snows.  Walking out into the freezing cold instantly puts me in a bad mood. My body tenses. My teeth hurt. It's not a pleasant sensation.

But I miss watching snow fall. I miss getting under a heavy quilt in a cold room and snuggling up to my big bear of a husband hoping that we would be snowed in the next day.  I miss the quiet mornings after a storm.

Today I woke up to lawn mowers.

The grass is greener here in Carlsbad, but right now I'd take a day or two of white out.

I am right with ya as far as snow goes, I love to watch it fall, love watching the kids play...don't like to be cold and don't like getting snowed in...we live up top a hill with a 1/4 mile driveway that goes straight up...when it snow alot, we are pretty much stuck. Enjoy your warm weather, I am jealous :)

I love the look of a snow covered field and the intricate details of a snow flakes, but I'm very happy living where I'm not required to shovel snow off my driveway.
Wishing you a wonderful day.
