As I watch the Weather Channel and the major winter storm affecting all of the states to our south, I am thankful that it is not happening here. The southern most part of our state may see a little of it, but nothing like Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio are getting. There are those here that wish it would happen but I’m happy with the way it is. Our snowfall in both October and November were unusually plentiful, something that we don’t get that early in the season. Now the opposite is happening. We received hardly any snow in December and this month so far. In fact, it has been very dry. I know that we won’t be lucky enough to make it through the entire winter with no snow, but this is lovely as far as I’m concerned. Now if the temps were just warmer . . . . .
