The Hysteria That Never Ends
Growing up in Houston, Texas, snow was NEVER a part of my (Charlie) life. I mean, I once went water skiing on Christmas Eve. By mid-February people are laying out to catch rays.
So when we first moved to the Southeast in the mid 90s, I thought snow was the best thing in the world. And a part of me still does. There is NOTHING I love more than the beautiful quiet of the sun rising over fresh snow. I can’t wait to see it tomorrow.
