Where's the snow??

I shouldn't really be complaining, but we have NO snow! It has snowed a few times this Winter. The kids even had a delayed start for school because of the visibility, but in the past couple of weeks it has all melted away. Surprisingly, its been in the high 30's to low 40's lately. We didn't have a white Christmas. This is my 10th Christmas here (O-M-G!) and the only time with no snow. The kids miss it, and I miss it. However, no snow means NO shoveling for me!

This is what our house looks like today. 

And this is what our house looked like two years ago on the day after Christmas. 

Guess who was gone two years ago during this blizzard? Yep, James. Luckily, our neighbors were awesome and helped each other dig themselves out. Some people weren't lucky and waited several days before they found someone to take a plow to their driveway. 

I'm hoping to miss all future blizzards here in North Dakota. I don't mind some snow though. And I hope the temperatures stay on the warmer side so our dog can fly with us to Germany. If its colder than 10 degrees they won't let her fly. 

UPDATE: Not even an hour after posting this and there is snow on the ground. So far its a light covering and not sticking to the grass yet, but I think I just jinxed myself.
