Snow Thoughts!

Well, we've officially gotten our first snow of the season. It's only a couple of inches, but it's enough to blanket the city in white and it really does look incredible (we'll discuss driving in it in another post :)
The mildly humorous part about this is the other day Cory and I had the following conversation:
Me: "In holiday movies or TV shows, it's always snowing at Thanksgiving. Where do those people live? The movies/TV shows are made in Hollywood where it never snows. Why do 'they' assume everybody up north experiences white holidays? It rarely snows here at Thanksgiving, but on TV it's always snowy."
Cory: "It's possible to get snow here at Thanksgiving."
Typical Cory response. Limited to as few words as possible to make his point. And he made it. So, here we are with snow at Thanksgiving.
But it really does make me did the holidays come to be associated with snow? In Australia it's summer. Does Santa (or Satan as my niece so lovingly refers to him) wear board shorts? Does he have reindeer? Inquiring minds want to know!

I always think the same thing about Christmas. Maybe if I say that we will have a REAL white Christmas, not just a few flurries! Hope you are enjoying your "winter weather" before the official start of that season!
