    Smile Merry White Christmas in Tupelo, MS!

    WhooHooooo! Got up to see if Santa made it, and it is snowing! Enough to put a layer on the ground, still coming down. This is the first Christmas snow I can remember in the deep south, when I was here any way. Which accounts for most of my life of ~ 62 years. I might have forgot one though.

    Any one remember southern White Christmas out side of the mountains?

    Merry Christmas Hammock Forum Friends every where! ( Hope the kids make it from New Hampshire today without travel problems!

    Meery Christmas to all! No white Christmas here again in western Jersey this year, but a doozy of a snowstorm may be heading our way for Sunday night. Time to try out and test some new gear!!!

    Oh Yeah, I remember those Utah winters! I moved to Layton just prior to Christmas 85. It started snowing while I was trying to unload my belongings into my apartment. By the next day there was a foot or so. The next two years- until I moved- were glorious ones for a new skier to develop his skills at Alta, Snowbird, Snow Basin and all of the multitude of other resorts! Deep, deep powder snow! I loved it!

    Far as I'm concerned, snow is only attractive on post cards and puzzles. Survived through one South Dakota winter and 3 years in Colorado and now, here in Norther California, it may get cold, but there's no snow.

    I moved here from Florida 24 years ago. Thought I'd died & gone to ski heaven. 8 ski areas within a one hour drive. Sweet. I Don't downhill ski anymore though. Bum knee, plus I need to save the money for hammock & rafting gear. Snow shoes are my winter fun now.....cheaper & a more peaceful way to enjoy the outdoors.

    Same here. I also like cross country skiing. But I have not done any skiing in several years. If I had snow available again I would probably mostly snow shoe or maybe cross country ski.
