I've never had a white Christmas, I moved from FL to TN a year ago, and of course last winter (my first in TN) was a super mild one, booooo. I'm hoping for a stupidly cold winter this year!
Oh, but to answer your question, even growing up in FL we would obsess over the gorgeousness of snow and people decorate with fake snow and spray the windows with fake frost. Yeah, we were total wannabe's, haha!
Just wait till it decides to come a really good one here.
It can get rough (especially up in the mountains). And awesome. Mostly awesome. Except people here can't drive worth anything and they all clean out the grocery stores at the first sign of bad weather.
I'm soooo excited to start working on this swap and have the most awesomest partner and so many ideas already.
I'm also feeling kinda like I'm rushing in the holidays, but then I remember the leaves haven't even changed here yet, and there will in fact still be all of autumn to enjoy. Minus the tourists. We get slammed by people coming to "view the leaves" every year for fall and then "have some snow" in the winter. Maybe I just notice cause I work in a hotel.
