Well, this Texas lady & her Texas boy had a quick run to Washington in early December. My twin sister (the one in red & white) took us to play in the snow, & we lucked out by arriving to the national forest just minutes after they opened the road for the season. Why does that matter? We were the first to the top (ok, after the employees) and we played and played in perfect snow. It was overcast, a storm blew in, & visibility was low for most of it, but it surely was a winter wonderland! It brought back a few memories of walking to pre-school when we still lived in Wyoming, and assured me that I am glad we moved south. I love visiting, but I wouldn't want to live in it! My son, on the other hand, never wanted to play in the Texas cold, but now that he's been in REAL snow, he can't get enough of cold weather at home! I think we made a mountain man out of him!
