    and thats why, my dear friend, i could never live in the snow states.

    I once had a house in PA that I was renovating. I parked the car up near the house and had 200 ft of snow to shovel. The next day, instead of parking closer to to the road, I had to do it all again.

    Amen! I spent two winters in North Dakota and decided I was only going to visit that area in the summer! I was born and raised on the West coast and grew up knowing that rain was a lot easier to shovel than snow!

    I'm a Left Coaster too, all my life. I now live where it snows just enough to thrill me for two days and then it's gone. Got three inches at the end of February. Second snow in almost two years living here. Lots of pretty pictures, not anything requiring shoveling. I'm okay with that.

    I grew up in S. California, lived in central California during college, then made a bee-line out of the state and into Montana in '79. Loved the long winters and activities. Moved to Ohio for 12 years and then back to MT. I have noticed in the 4 years back here, I don't like my long winters much anymore. Too cold and dreary for too long of a time. We joke that the year here in MT is 9 months winter and 3 months visitors! DH and I are thinking we need to move more South. We have had enough snow to last the rest of our lives! But since our jobs are here, and others are hard to find anymore....

    Mr. Oz - your family pix are beautiful. Has Mrs. Oz made a guest appearance on this
    forum yet or is she camera shy? My husband recalls his one and only visit to the
    Phillipines when he was a young boy. He went in toe with his mother and two brothers.
    He remembers being there for a month or more experiencing a typhoon, pig roast
    for his birthday, baths outside in a metal tub and learning lots of dirty words.
    He has special memories. Your photos are amazing.
