Snow Season Falls Between Winter and Spring

What season is this? SNOW SEASON - that season between real Winter and real Spring.

The outdoor temperature isn't the only thing fluctuating. There seems to be a fluctuation in attitudes, too.

I thought the "Devil Went Down to Georgia", but he went to Alabama while Real Georgia Snow was seen as a blessing.

BUT...Everyone Is Doing It... so Southern Virginia, not wanting to miss out on the fun, put in an order for snow, too.

The folks in Upstate New York have no problem entertaining themselves with their idea of Winter Comic Relief.

Canadians, no wimps for winter, get up at the crack of dawn to see the Sunrise Shimmer. Just how cold is that?

The brave folks in Illinois take it all in stride. When life gives you snow and earthquakes, you make a Frosty Shake.

And for those expats asking "Who the hell says it doesn't snow in Italy" will find proof in the photos of a Piemonte Winter.

Meanwhile in Paris, there was Snow, But No-mageddon, and we're all happy to hear that the fashion world didn't end.

One centimeter of snow was reason enough to stay home and sing Let It Snow, Let It Blow, Let It Snow on the French Riviera.

Here at home in North Carolina, Charm ("The Gardening Greyhound") did what dogs all over the world do when it snows - the happy dance!
