I wish we could get snow for Christmas.  Instead, this December we have unseasonably WARM weather (bah HUMBUG).  Even thought we rarely get snow where I live, we did have this awesome stuff in February 2011:

Guess Who’s Not Wild About Snow?
Hint: It isn’t the cows.

It isn’t fair – we even had snow at our old house in January of 2010.

Why should it skip a year?  Why???  I want snow again.  I WANT SNOW AGAIN.  I want it, I want it, I want it!!  

Alas, no matter how many fits I throw, I fear this is not going to be a Christmas Wish that is fulfilled.  Sigh.  It almost makes a girl think there really is no Santa Claus.  And while I know God loves me, He seems to be fulfilling Alpha Hubby’s prayers for no snow far more often than my cries for “snow snow snow, pleeeease!!”

And even if my snowmen pray, jingle AND do a snow dance, nothing has changed.  My only snowman fix has been fulfilled by gazing at other peoples’ with hunger:

And digging mine out:

I would really rather see this:

Someone went to a LOT of trouble

…even if their leader looks like this:

…than see this in December this year:
