Kind of makes me glad I moved back to OK. I used to say I liked snow, then I moved to MI for a few years where the Fluffy White Crap falls, and doesn't melt for months.

We might get a few inches a couple times, but it's usually gone in a few days. That said, my mother tells me that a couple times when she was younger, she's seen blizzards on Thanksgiving. I've seen weather so warm that you're wearing t-shirts and shorts, and leaving the back door open with the screen door shut, all on Thanksgiving.

I learned to like four seasons when I found myself in Florida, Christmas day, trying to entertain a house full of nieces and nephews, my mom sick in bed. My husband brainstormed and turned the A/C down real low so that we could start a fire and roast marshmallows with the kids. I owned a wardrobe of brightly colored scrubs tops and tank tops, and made a wrap around skirt from Christmas print fabric so that I could sweat and still look decent when I greeted guests or sat down to dinner. Do I miss hot holidays? I didn't like the ice last year, but aside from that, I'll take it.
