It would feel just like home except

they don't believe in SNOW PLOWS in Idaho!!!!  Seriously, I think there is one snow plow for the entire valley.  Besides the interstate, I haven't been on one plowed road today. UGH! We have at least 3 inches on the ground and it is still snowing. It is absolutely beautiful as long as you don't have to drive anywhere.  We have had more snow in the last two weeks than in the past two winters we have lived here.  I love the snow, it makes it feel like back home.  I love that there is enough snow the kids can get outside and play in it. The mountains had 9 new inches yesterday,  so Lance took Morgan and Landon up for some night skiing. It was very quiet on the mountain : not many lines + plenty of runs down the mountain = Lance and the kids having a blast!

That would be tough! I remember one year when I was living down South we got a foot of snow and the city was literally closed down for an entire week. They maybe had a few plows and a little salt, but down there, the main thing they lay on the roads is sand, of all things!

Here in MI, they are totally prepared for whatever snow we get. They have already salted the roads before a flake falls. It's great for getting out. But, it was 60 degrees today...crazy!

Night skiing sounds fun! I bet the kids loved that time with their Dad!! :)

Sounds like a great way to enjoy the massive amounts of snow!

And night-skiing sounds like a great memory making activity for the kids...

Can I come too?

i'm so envious right now! i would love to sit in the house, by the fire, and watch the snow fall! then reality would hit, i'd realize i need to run errands, and then i, too, would be frustrated at no plowing. what are they thinking?
