Let it Snow - Please

Back in early 1995 we were living in Texas.........prior to that, Waynesboro, VA.

Before the move to Texas, we would get some really nice snow storms; as would my dad who lived here in West Virginia.

The year we moved to Texas, Dad sent pictures of the snow storms they were hit with dumping close to 3 foot of snow followed by another major snow storm.  In Texas, we just didn't see that; although we did get hit with a huge ice storm that was unbelievable.

Almost a year and a half later, we moved to West Virginia and in almost 17 years living here, we've yet to see that kind of snow.  I think the most that we've seen at any one time was about 22 inches.  All the rest have been multiples of small accumulations.......just enough to cause hazardous conditions but not enough to really keep people off the roads.

I miss seeing the big snow storms.  They always seem to go around us for some reason.  Even a foot of snow would make me happy :-))  To me there's nothing more beautiful than looking across the landscape blanketed in snow before anyone or anything disturbs it.
