I Could Live Without Snow

I agree with Joe, let's skip the snow this year... or at least put it off a bit longer. If it wasn't for our agriculture communities need/reliance on the moisture I would be fine with no snow at all in the winter of 2023-2024.

I realize I have no business living in North Dakota with that attitude but 69 winters in the Northland has me dreaming of a hot and sandy Christmas. Maybe next year I will save up for a Caribbean Cruz and get some beach time in and visit Margaritaville.

Good morning Bob. I am dreaming of a white Christmas like the ones I remember in my youth. After 27 years in Florida I longed for a white Christmas coming back to Chicago eight years ago. Nothing big, just snow showers on Christmas morning will do. Not likely but I can dream. Enjoy your day.

Hi Bob... and now you know why I live in Charlotte. Don't miss the snow at all. Last year we had no snow. But even when we do, most times just stay home and wait for it to melt in a day or so.

I think it's definitely time for you to schedule a winter vacation somewhere warm!

Good morning Bob,

After 69 years of winter it's definitely time to schedule a winter vacation and make sure Margaritaville is on your list to stop.

I too can appreciate a non-white winter, but it is a healthy way of restoring elements to the ground.

Good morning Wayne Martin 😊 The weather guessers are predicting snow tonight and tomorrow. I hope they are wrong as they often are.

Thank you Bill Salvatore - East Valley . Now with my kids graduating from college next Spring it is a good time to review my options. I may need you as my Realtor in a year or so.

You soud like my sister in the Denver area Nina Hollander, Broker , Here today, gone tomorrow". I'm guessing it gets "gone" faster in Charlotte.

Me too Kat Palmiotti . I've got some medical testing today and a week from today and those tests may have a strong influence on if I go South this year or not.

I definitely need a warm weather vacation Dorie Dillard Austin TX but instead of Margarittaville it will most likely be to AZ where my best friend winters.

I am sure the farmers would like a nice blanket of snow Brian England as well as the hunters, skiers, snowmobilers and many more.

I've lived in Sacramento all my life.  I can count on the fingers of both my hands the number of times it has snowed here.  We always look upon it as a treat.

That same snow is in our forecast as well Will Hamm . We were in the 50's today but there are winter storm warnings out for tomorrow.

I can understand that Myrl Jeffcoat , that would be like us getting a day in the 60's in January or February.

Thank you for making this post FEATURED in the Old Farts Club group!  Funny how our attitudes change as we get older. I actually remember being excited about setting new records for snowfall and seeing if my snowblower would reach the point where it could not throw it up any higher. It was also exciting to make forts in those monster snow banks.

I am so grateful that I get to live without the snow, haha.  I guess you might be getting plenty of it by now.
