When you live in the high desert of the Southwest (Colorado), you crave snow in the winter. You NEED snow in the winter.
That winter snow is the year's supply of moisture, even - especially - into the hot, dry, deserty days of summer. It's money in the bank for the future.
We haven't received much snow - or rain - this winter. We're always grateful for any little bit of moisture, but especially this winter, when the drought monitor classifies our region as "extreme" in condition, we see snow - and rain - as gold. Literally.
Our bank accounts have filled a little in the last couple of days. :)
