No snow or ice is fine with me

I was pleasantly surprised with no snow and a beautiful Sunny ☀️ day albeit Cold for my January birthday this year! The rest of the winter can stay just like this and it will be fine with me!

A coating of snow

I miss the winters when we usually always had a white Christmas and if I was lucky, snow on my birthday in Feb. It seems like we're getting less and less snow every winter season. Is this global warming?

Want snow

I miss years ago when in the winter we had snow I loved this Christmas it was a white one loved it just hopping to get more snow if I wanted no snow and warm winters I would move down south

Hope we have a warmer, dryer winter.

After the rough year the world has had, I hope we have an easier winter. Hoping for no snow storms. Stay safe everyone

Snow

I live in SW Ohio and I'm only 21 but I've already noticed the difference in snowfall between my childhood and now. When I was a kid we would get so much snow. We would put a yard stick outside when it would first start to snow and see how much we would get. Now, over a decade later, it's been almost two years since I've seen substantial snowfall in SW Ohio. I miss the snow.

Awesome

I bought the almanac for my father and I buy it for my sons now every year. I still have my dad's. Now I've got grandchildren to buy it and share with them. Love it

We Haven't Get Alot Snow For 5 Years
