I Love Snow

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:

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

It gets WORSE – we had snow in 2009, too:

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:

  1. I love that picture of all the tiny snowpeople. Today my kids and i built one tiny snowperson. Then we stomped on it. That’s part of the fun for them.
    We truly have a ton of snow here in Minnesota. It’s truly beautiful. I wish we could share some with you. Maybe you and Alpha just need to have a weekend getaway to a snowy place. To make snow angels!

    1. Seems kind of cruel to stomp on poor defenseless snowmen. No wonder the leader up above looks so mad!!

    1. This is HUGE for you, baby. Thanks. I’ll take it. I will hold you to this public promise you made me!!

  2. Ugh, you’re another one of THOSE… You and I and my husband should go on a snowy vacation to the mountains and you and he can throw snowballs at each other while I and Alpha Hubby sit inside with a mug of hot cocoa and chuckle at you both. 😉

    1. Ah come on! You know you want to come out in the snow… and rub our faces in it! Your vacation sounds WONDERFUL (to me)!!!

  3. I hear you! Houston never gets REAL snow, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting it. I would settle for a day under the freeze point. The view out your front door is beautiful even if unseasonal. And at least you have your snowmen!

    1. Yes, I comfort myself with my snowmen because I can torture Alpha Hubby with them!! And I do like my view down the driveway. Guess I’d better quit complaining!!

  4. Oh my friend .. we are snowless too here. And Mr. G could not be happier. My starting to get worried about the gardens – the magnolia tree had a couple of buds on it… and the grass looks as green as mid to late spring. Hoping all is well on your end … things are slowly getting back to normal here. Hugs to you, Blessings C. (HHL)

    1. Right after I wrote this post, we found the weather alert that our low tonight is low 20 degrees F. It could happen – snow snow!!! Our magnolia trees are very confused!
