Missing the snow

I grew up in Colorado. Half of the state is covered by the Rocky Mountains and it has some of the best snowfall in the United States.

I've really missed Colorado winters after having lived these past several years in Tokyo. I figure it would be much easier to suffer through the cold weather if only I could look out of my window and enjoy a snow crested landscape. I miss snow.

When we do have the rare snowfall here, we know its a short-lived experience and everyone heads outside immediately to play in the fresh snow. My kids, like most kids, love to play in the snow. Without it, all we end up with are the grey winter blahs.

I found some old photos from 2002 of the kids playing in the snow in our little "backyard." With spring right around the corner, it looks like this may be the closest I get to snow this year. Ah well, there's always next year....
