I used to love snow growing up, but once I started commuting to university and work, it started to become a huge nuisance. The thing is, in Ottawa the first snowfall is usually early November and the snow stays until March/April. It becomes for slushy, icky and just a pain. Luckily this year the weather has been stunning! We've had an extended fall which resulted in a green Christmas. Quite a few people have been a little disappointed, but I have absolutely loved it! At the end of the day snow doesn't make Christmas. It was still a special time with my favourite people!
