I love the look of snow on the fields and trees, and to watch it come silently down is so beautiful.
I tell DH "That is what the Hallmark channel is for".
A light snowfall once or twice a year when you put off most outside work and stay in making a pot of soup or cookies works for me. Having to dig out of a drift, plow the driveway or drive in it is not my idea of a pleasant winter! And the thought of having to haul buckets of water to the stock due to frozen hoses or pipes makes me cringe!
I really respect al of you who have to do all that stuff! BRRRRRR!
If ice was a frequent occurrence $16 on amazon spent on crampons can save you from a broken bone. I only had to fall five or six times before giving in and I'm glad I did. Sounds like you're probably going to be okay though.
OK, Mr. @Mike CHS, you are not the only one who got snow. We got some snow here in western Arkansas, too! Here is a picture of the Flood mountain range(*) SE of us. Look halfway up the mountain range, where the snow starts. Maybe I can start a ski slope here. What do you think?

(*) Miss @thistlebloom, I know you probably laugh hysterically whenever I call the hills around us "mountains". After all, at 2400 ft elevation above MSL, they are less than half the elevation of the valleys where you reside. And the mountain peaks there are almost 4 times that!
