We had a little snow this morning (12/9/2007) . I always thought my place looked good in snow. The ponderosa pine (very front of yard) and the juniper (left side of photo) seem to hold the snow – sort of like a flocked Christmas tree. I wonder if that’s where the idea came from.
Only someone who lived in the desert for 20+ years could get excited about a little snow. We get some snow here in Prescott, but not enough that it gets to be a problem. I went to college (SUNY New Paltz, class of ’77) in upstate NY, so I do know what a snow problem is.
