It's finally a white Christmas!

Before Christmas Reuben thought it was hilarious to threaten me. "It's not going to be a white Christmas, Mommy." I'd start to cry, and he would maniacally laugh. Well, he was right, it was not a white Christmas. A few Saturdays later he looked out the window, and was very please to tell me that it was finally going to be a white Christmas.

They have been promising me a winter storm for the last few days, but it is currently raining, which made those last few patches of snow disappear. I don't miss pushing my stroller around in inches of snow. I don't miss getting so cold I get numb. But I do miss how it looks, white and sparkling, clean and fresh. I miss taking a deep breath full of cold air and feeling alive, because I could tell a difference me between my body and my surroundings. I miss feeling like this dead part of the year was actually giving something back in return instead of just being dead.

I know that I am in the minority with this school of thought, but I'd sure love to have some snow to enjoy. (Driving twenty minutes to see man made snow does not count).

That is crazy that it can be snowing 5 minutes away. And raining here.

I'm with you all the way B...I love snow! I really, really want snow, but no--all we get is rain. Stinking rain. All of the time! I'm going to go crazy!
