In all the places we keep close track of (our home, my parents' home, and Husby's parents' home) there is currently some form of precipitation - although quite different from place to place. Up north, their gift is mostly ice, with some snow and sleet thrown in for good measure - how exciting. Back in Texas, it's snowing - yes, snowing in Texas - how unusual. And here at home, we have yet another rainy day - how bland. Even though it's a pain, we would love to have some fluffy white flakes gracing our yard - it just doesn't seem like a proper winter without any.
