These photos were taken yesterday Decemember 18,2012. These are beautiful pictures taken from around my house. And as I said before this is my first time in the snow. My name is Tina and I am 16 years old. I moved here over the summer and was told winter was the most beautiful season of all, and not really believing anyone, because you know being a teenager limits what you believe. Anyways, yes I have seen snow before but never this much. I've seen what the locals call a light dusting, where theres enough to make one or two snowballs. But not this year. As you see we got more than just a couple inches. We have about a foot, of this glistening white powder. I really enjoy the snow. Thank you for your time in hearing my story of my first real snow.
