Just in case you hadn't had enough of this background, here's a little more. I'm a little snow obsessed these days. Can ya tell?
The mountains are the one thing I seriously miss living in south Texas. Nary a mountain in site. Not even a little hill. It doesn't even pretend to act like winter around here for more than a month or so and therefore, doesn't feel like home at all. In New York we had freezing temperatures and mountains of snow most of the year, but no real mountains in sight. In Hawaii, we had beautiful mountains, but no snow. Needless to say, we took picture after picture of those gorgeous snow covered mountains that so perfectly depict Montana in winter.
