Sunday Spotlight

Winter - a time of year I have disliked for a long time. Enough so that I used to sing "I'm dreaming of a green Christmas" and wished to move far south and away from the cold Utah weather. Jeff Foxworthy said my feelings in this:
"If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction, you live in Utah."
But this year I have really enjoyed the snow... I figure it has to be for two reasons: My truck's four wheel drive that makes driving through snow a breeze. And, most importantly, Liv LOVES the snow this year! We have now made two snowmen and now looking forward to another good snow to make another! It makes the bleak weather report look okay... this week it looks like Utah will be dumped on again. Plus, Liv likes to name her snowmen just as though they were another friend or toy. The first of the season was named Bob and the second Larry "Like Grandpa Larry," she said! That was special, but he only lasted a couple days, so now she's looking forward to the next snowstorm. Where before I would grumble, now I'm also excited for snow so I can go play in it with my daughter as she discovers all the fun mysteries it holds!

p.s. My other favorite "You might live in Utah..." Jeff Foxworthy sayings:

"If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you live in Utah."
"If "vacation" means going anywhere south of Salt Lake City for the weekend, you live in Utah."
"If you measure distance in hours, you live in Utah."
"If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you live in Utah."
"If you have switched from "heat" to "A/C" and back again in the same day, you live in Utah."
"If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in Utah."
"If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you live in Utah."
"If the speed limit on the highway is 75 mph -- you're going 80, and everyone is still passing you, you live in Utah."
