'Tis the season?!

It's hard to get into the Christmas spirit when on Dec 2/09  this is the sight of your backyard. Feels like this has been the longest transition between seasons...we are waiting and waiting for Winter to start.  I've been wishing for some white stuff for the last couple of weeks, but still no flakes in sight!! The local mountains have been getting loads of it though which makes me very happy. I can hardly wait to strap on my board and hit the slopes!!!
