We certainly get our share of snow every winter, & you can add to that - freezing rain & sleet as well. I mostly view winter weather as something we have to "get through". I worry constantly about my kids driving on slippery, icey roads.
We've been fairly lucky so far- not too much snow. Right now there's a few inches on the ground, but it's supposed to warm up & rain.
THen there's the guy who plows....$75 each time he comes. It's a bargain, as we have a loooong driveway. You cannot see my house from the road. My neighbor pitches in another $75.
We have a bird feeder too. It's right outside my kitchen windows, attached to our deck. I love watching the birds. We don't have it out in the warmer weather, but as soon as it gets really cold, the birds seem to remember & start to come looking for the feeder. I think we've finally found a feeder that the squirrels won't bother! Only once in a while now, will I see one trying to get some sunflower seeds. (Drives my dogs crazy 😜). We don't have a heated water source for the birds, but I try to keep a big dog bowl filled to the brim with water outside for them. Unfortunately, it's been freezing right up, so every morning, I put warm water in it and try again. Also, we have a little suet cage for them.
All that said, I do agree that the snow looks pretty, & it doesn't really feel like Christmas without it, BUT just a few inches is fine with me, please! Haha.
By now you know me, & know that I borrow worry (will the oil truck not make it to my house?, will my kids insist on driving?, etc. etc. ) , & I let these concerns outweigh the loveliness of the view outside.
