Because I read a lot of blogs, I have developed some blog friends who live in winter wonderlands. (Shout out to Jen!) As beautiful as the snow looks, this southern girl can't even imagine how hard it must be to get kids dressed and out the door for school in blizzard conditions. It's hard enough to get their flip-flops on down here.
Living near the Gulf coast of east Texas, snow is something we only read about in books or hear about on the news. Oh, about every 4 years, we get a few flurries that freak us out in a good way, but the flurries never make enough impact to be called snow. Goodness knows we all pray for a snow day....but that never happens. Never the less, when discussing seasons, the winter season is described and illustrated with bare trees, snowflakes and snowmen.
