We are had our first snow yesterday. It's nice to be inside the house and watch the snowfall. We have a wooded lot so everything is quiet and peaceful. When you look out the front lawn, all you will see are trees, very tall trees. Snow is only good when you are indoors. If you're out and about, snow isn't as attractive. Driving during the first few hours of a snowfall isn't for the faint of heart. It is very easy to slip and slide. I'm thankful that I'm driving a 4WD. Coming from a tropical country and living in California, I was not used to driving in the snow.
I remember the first time, I was in Rochester, NY for work training. It was Spring but it still snowed. That was a scary week for me. I've received snow driving tips from everyone in the class which came in handy. The most important tip is to drive SLOWLY and take turns even SLOWER!
Yesterday, we went to the Christmas tree farm which is 5 minutes away, to get our tree. I told dh, "snow or no snow, we will get it". We've been coming to this farm called 'A Quiet Place' for years now. The couple who runs it is very friendly and the guy kinda looks like Santa if he only has his beard a little longer. LOL He didn't raise his prices. I guess he figured that if he did, people will not buy from him. We noticed that there are more trees that aren't tagged this year. Maybe some people want to save and just got their tree from Home Depot.
Christmas is almost here and I need to finish up on my decoration. It is always freezing each year we pick up our tree and this year is no exception. Only this year, we have an added bonus, SNOW!
