In Search Of Snow

Can you see my big smile?
This year, with all the talk in the news about parts of our country getting more than their share of snow, I have been looking forward to experiencing it. I live about 45 minutes from where there is snow, but because of one thing or another, I have not been able to get to it.
Earlier this month Fermin and I got to go to Idaho (the north part of Idaho) and thought, for sure there will be snow. I saw pictures of where we were to stay and it showed a beautiful winter wonderland. My iPhone weather report showed that it was to snow during the time we were to be there. We even got the hotel van to pick us up from the airport so we would not have to drive in the snow! To my surprise there was no snow, nothing, zero! This year has been the driest winter in their history! You could see a little bit of snow way up in the mountains (just like in Fresno, where I live).
During my stay, the ladies of our group, got taken to the slopes, and I thought, Yeah, finally I’ll see some snow. Again, we got to the slopes and you could see that it had snowed sometime ago, but nothing to get excited about. I went ahead and purchased a $17.00 ticket to go higher up – to where people ski and thought for sure there would be something there. So finally on our way up there I started to see the snow, and it snow while we were up there! I was so happy.
I know this is silly, but I don’t like for winter to pass me by and not experience some kind of frozen precipitation, just a little.♥
