Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.

Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didnīt cut the trunk....the tree...
One of my great past times in leading up to Christmas is watching the weather. Usually in late September I make a daily stop by the Weather Service to see what is happening. I did that tonight and read this:
HEAVY SNOW WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 AM MDT MONDAY
A HEAVY SNOW WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 AM MDT MONDAY. THIS WARNING IS FOR THE SALT LAKE AND TOOELE VALLEYS...THE SOUTHERN WASATCH FRONT AND THE SANPETE VALLEY...THE GREAT SALT LAKE DESERTS AND MOUNTAINS SOUTH OF I-80 AND FOR WEST CENTRAL
UTAH. SNOW TOTALS OF 2 TO 8 INCHES ARE EXPECTED BY MONDAY MORNING. THE GREATEST TOTALS WILL BE IN THE UTAH AND SANPETE VALLEYS AND ALONG THE BENCH AREAS OF THE SALT LAKE AND TOOELE VALLEYS.
In September, this would be an awesome thing to read. But at this point in the year, we're ready to put the sleigh in dry dock.
Touche`.... It sure is windy here in the NE part of Az. I was just telling the hubby that a good snowfall would be nice (sort of) just to keep us on our toes. Especially when spring has just arrived. Global Warming?
No snow here right now, temps in the 40's & 60's tomorrow, but you never know here what the weather will be like on day from the next. Jana said they were getting snow where she lives too, spring will be here soon for you guys.
Around these parts, you can get set up with a workable plow for about $3000. You could theoretically make that back in one season as long as no unexpected repairs are necessary. It's going to be a heap, of course, but plowing will ruin a nice truck in a hurry.
I can't believe you don't have a snowblower. I got mine for $50 and it lasted two years without a problem. It's on the large end of the scale... I'm hoping I can fix it for cheap.
I'd rather spend the money on Christmas lights. Besides, I LIKE the snow piled up in front of my house.
My folks live up on a mountain side here and this summer my sister and I are going in on an ATV with a blade on it because there's no way my Dad can handle that at his house. Usually when the snow flies we head over to their house with as many able-bodied kids as I can and start digging. Then we come home and totally ignore what we've got here.
