Here is a picture that I just took outside my office door of the snow falling. We are in the high desert so we count on the winter snow for water. It’s been a pretty lousy winter so far (meaning very little snow). Forest fires and drought conditions occur when we don’t get snow/rain.
When it rains or snows people tend to be quite happy here. When I went to England it was actually quite nice to have it cloudy and rainy, as compared to the almost always clear sunny skies here in Espanola. It is not uncommon to see me sprint out the office door and run around in the rain/snow. Ahhhhh! What a feeling. I love Nature :)
Now, if only it can snow enough to stay for more than a few hours. Sledding? Snowman? (wishful thinking probably).
