What is your secret?
I think we all have to remove our "Let it snow" signs no matter how big or small they are. Please look around your homes and put them in a safe place until Christmas 2014 when we all want a "White Christmas" again :)

Whoever is praying for a blizzard, shut up and go to Dairy Queen! :-)
I *do* like winter. I think a winter landscape is nice to look at. But come on Mamma Nature, enough of the deep freeze eh? :-)
