Around here it hasn’t snowed at all yet, this year. And when I say ‘this year’, I mean since last summer, of course. I can’t say ‘this winter’ since it technically isn’t winter yet.
Anyway, usually we get our first snow around November, which typically doesn’t last until Christmas. I wouldn’t really care too much for snow, if I wouldn’t love to go skiing. And although it would be enough for me if it started snowing a week before I go skiing and melted away one day afterwards, I see the necessity of having long periods of snow, so not everybody goes skiing at the same time as I do. Also, it’d be nice to have white Christmas again. Haven’t had that for a long, long time.
