It's not so much of a snow day here in Jacksonville, as only maybe 5 flakes fell, but up north it's one of the worst storms in recent memory.  In my own way I am both sad and happy as I do miss playing in the snow but never in a millions years could I miss driving in it.


     It makes me think back on my childhood to the first big blizzard of my memory, the Blizzard of '79.  I was 5 years old at that time and that storm left 18" of snow in Maryland.  The worst was yet to come after the storm as high winds and blowing snow left snowdrifts up to 12' high. 

 

     I know my wife has said she wants to live where there's snow.  Well it's a perception brought on by not having any experience with snow before.  I think before we live where there's snow, it's best to visit it first.  I know how hard it is for me to adjust to the colder temperatures here in the US compared to the Philippines, for her it's going to be a nightmare the first winter, having never been anywhere colder than 76 degrees.
