Here's a re-post of my poem, inspired by the season... Thanks to juozapas, from Ontario who originally posted this pic

Enjoying a gentle snowfall, settled-in with a good pipe



Every child should be raised where snow falls.

For snowball fights from snow forts,

For snowmen with cobs and carrot noses,

For sleds and skates and skis and sleighs,

For playing "King of the Mountain" on a plowed-up pile,

For making snow angels;
And the wonder of looking up on a silvery night

As thick flakes fall, backlit by moonbeams,

And tickle your eyelashes

And do their magic with trees.

My city in IL had the first snow of the year this week. Since it won't get warm in the next couple of days, there will be some white left on the ground for Christmas.

I grew up in the North East; I have seen and shoveled all the snow I care to see. It has never snowed in Raleigh NC for Christmas and I hope it never does!

I shoveled my driveway here in Ottawa every few hours on Friday. I get that it's nice for Christmas, but if it never snowed again I'd be a happy man.

No snow here in FL although the past day or so has been colder. The next few days are expected to be warm again.

There's some snow here in Anchorage although it's been getting blown away lately. More snow scheduled for Tuesday which is a very good thing, it will warm up from an average of 2-3 F to about 25 F.

austinxpipe,
For all the hardships that heavy snow brings, I don't think I'd trade that view for anything -- at least not on Christmas!

Thanks for the marvelous pix, guys. :clap:

I live in Winnipeg, where I'm pretty certain there's only been one or two "brown Christmases" in it's history. We recently got a few days of snow with absolutely no wind. The results were magical.

It's snowing here now in northern VA - cue all the crazy drivers! Panic! Chaos!
Wife has a harp gig this afternoon - snow doesn't help; it's a pain to move in good weather. And it's not even our church. Meh.
OTOH, it probably won't stick...

We have snow here inVT. In fact, we've been here about 15 years and have always had a white Xmas.
Teddy - awesome photo! Do you know where that was taken?
