I want to see my grass again!

Long ago my family and I left Western NY, otherwise known as The Snow Belt, to live in sunny and way hot VA, a place with temperate, even boring winters. A place where one could picnic outside in January, where campus schools allowed students to enjoy the air even if they were only in elementary school.

Well, I’ve got to say, this winter you have disappointed me, Virginia. I’m very tempted to cheat on you and move to Florida. Yeah, they’ve had it cold but I don’t think they’ve been dumped on with snow every weekend for almost a month.

And this is the winter VA Power decided to raise it’s electric rates. Our bill jumps way up mid-winter anyway, but our last bill was mind-blowing. See I can go a long time, past anyone else, not turning on the A/C in summer, but I can’t deal with the cold. I’ll sit here with a couple of layers of clothes, blankets piled on top of me, heat cranked but feeling like it’s not working at all, with a cup of hot chocolate. Motivation zero, because doing something would require movement from under my lovely blankets. Perhaps I should’ve asked for a Snuggie at Christmas, but at the time it didn’t seem necessary.

So what am I saying here?

I’m over it, Virginia! Do you hear me? I am OVER winter. I want sunshine, drought, and blistering heat back. I won’t even complain about it, I promise!


PS. Watch for my next post to help fight off the winter chills!


My Christmas Card to You!

All of these shots are from Richmond, VA where I live. To enlarge the pics, hold your mouse over the picture.Mr. ChristmasMy son got to meet Mr. Christmas in front of his well-lit house off of Skipwith. This is one of the houses with its own radio station. It’s also one of the houses where you can catch up with the limos–handy to follow to find the best houses.
Farmington houseThis house’s influence has spread to the house next door. I remember when a church group used to hand out candy canes and hot cocoa next door. Now both lawns are covered with lights. The traffic in this little Farmington cul de sac is insane!
Our treeLast year we got a pre-lit tree, and boy is it bright!
Reindeer names.I believe this is one of the houses on the TLC Christmas lights special. The owners were out in the driveway chatting with folks.
Santa visits the carIn one neighborhood there’s 4 houses in a row lit up with the tacky lights and at one Santa came out to greet the cars and hand out coloring books. Problem with this neighborhood is that it’s so close to Broad St. that it causes the traffic to back up onto a main road.
A House off Broad St.We do this tour every year and it does make us miss our mini-van, but the Prius is better on gas. Some year I dream of doing one of the limo tours, just because I’ve never ridden in a limo…sigh.
Christmas Arch
One of the houses in a neighborhood off Patterson had a display set to music–I couldn’t catch a good pic since it kept changing. You tune your car radio to their station then watch the show. Very cool. We encountered at least 4 Santas, Mr. Christmas, and Mrs. Claus. Usually we go to the Farmington house and find a limo to follow, but this year I printed a list from the Times-Dispatch web site and that worked great.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! And here’s to a peaceful New Year!
