    Great Outdoors: Reminiscing about last year’s snow

    They do say that absence makes the heart grow fonder, and I must say I am feeling that way about the December snowstorms that we had last year. It was so nice to have snow on the ground for Christmas. My family from Arizona comes in December for a few weeks every year, and last year we were sledding and building snowmen.
