A bit belated because I guess we don't talk gardening very much in the winter. It was a real treat to get a white Christmas in the NW. My wife loves getting snow. I like it too, but I don't like driving in it. It had been snowing for probably an hour but we didn't notice because it started after dark and the curtains were closed. I opened the front door to get something from my truck, saw the snow and called her over. She was ecstatic!
