Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

Real Estate Agent with Sotheby's International Realty

I love the snow and I hate the snow.  I love to look out at the snow and enjoy it's beauty and sereneness.  I hate the cold, the wet and icy roads.  I love snow days and baking ginger snaps.  I hate shoveling the walkway.  I love the smell of pinion and cedar burning in the fireplace.  I hate cleaning the fireplace.  I love crunching through the snow.  I hate falling down in the snow. 

I guess you could say I have a love/hate relationship with snow!

If we can stay home, it's OK - I just hate driving in it, especially after I totalled my car in a storm two years ago.  But it is pretty to look at!

Beautiful, just beautiful and so nicely said, and don't we all - emailing from Massachusetts where at the moment is is one big glassy ice slick on the roads with the exception of the falling snow......again, love hate...full beautiful moon, clouds in the sky have just a twinkle of stars behind, the air is crisp and cool...oh no cold....I think about leaving Massachusetts, I think about my friends in Florida and Georgia...and then I think again and realize no matter how much i hate the snow, I love the snow....guess the love hate relationships are not just in New Mexico, peace to you in the snow!

Victoria, we are supposed to get 8 to 12 inches tonight. That's a lot of snow for our part of the country!

Victoria, although we had a few days get into the 30's here recently I haven't seen snow like that for quite a while and definitely not here in FL.  With over 400 years experience in the Santa Fe market, you are going to be my GoTo person for sure.  Thanks!  (Just having some fun in the Rain.)

Victoria...living in Michigan all these years--snow is good for photos, postcards, postponed classes, & exercise. Other than that, I now state unequivalently I don't LIKE snow anymore. BUT, snow in Santa Fe--isn't that a sin or something. Santa Fe--New Mexico--SW--I know that Texas gets snow in some areas, but never would have thought it in Santa Fe.

I love the snow too. But I do also like going out in it. Skiing is a big winter activity for me regardless how cold it is outside. If you want to stay warm the secret is layering. A t-shirt, then a shirt, then a sweat top or sweater and then the jacket. I prefer a windproof shell which keeps it a little lighter. On the bottoms it would be the standard, long johns, and some winter pants. Then our nice and toasty and can enjoy the snow. Oh, by the way, I spent my childhood in a place nicknamed Winterpeg otherwise know as Winnipeg.

I love snow too!  Of course, I live in the desert so don't have to deal with it unless I want to go to the mountains..and then I can leave.  I remember the snow from my first 42 years in the Upper Midwest.  Now THAT was snow and it lasted FOREVER!  I don't miss THAT!

looks great.  Wish we could have seen more of the white stuff here this winter.  We have one hill that is really suffering for the Olympics... they are actually trucking in snow for the hill.
