Does This Snowman Look out of Place or What?

Snowman Observes Falling Leaves

The two sycamore trees in this yard have filled it with falling leaves. In the photo, it's already December 10 (2016). Some of my friends in other states are posting photos of real snowmen in their yards and scenes I see only on Christmas cards. One friend just moved to New Hampshire and she's posting snow pictures on Facebook. I kind of like our weather. I'm not sorry we don't have a white Christmas or Thanksgiving. I want real trees, but I don't mind if the snowmen are artificial. How about you? Does it snow where you live? How do you feel about that? If it doesn't snow where you live, do you wish it did? Why or why not?

We don't have the four seasons but I did experience winter and snow when I was abroad. I wish it snows here!

It does not snow here and that makes me very happy. I hate the snow and driving in it.

I would hate trying to drive in it or clean off the car before I could start driving. I'm surprised it doesn't snow in Roseburg. I thought it did.

@bagarad I had a car with a remote control and before going to it in the morning I would start the car with the remote and the heater on and defrosters. By the time I got in it, it was nice and warm and windows cleaned off.

It doesn't snow here where I live. I am also in California. It has only snowed three times in my life, and one time it didn't even stick. When I was a kid I really, really wanted it to snow every winter and to experience a white Christmas. I still think it would be neat to have a white Christmas, but it's probably just the novelty of it to me. I wouldn't like it so much if I had to go out in freezing temps or had to shovel a driveway.

Exactly. I had it snow once when we lived in Ventura County. It was a February Day in 1988 or 1989. There was hardly enough for the kids to make a snowball each.

When I was young we would go to camp in the winter to the mountains in hopes of seeing snow we could play in. We never had to shovel it or try to drive in it. I prefer to see it in pictures now.

@bagarad To drive in the snow is not too bad if it is soft, but if the temperature is very cold and ice forms under the snow it's extremely dangerous.

I don't care for serious snow, too cold and uncomfortable! Our bill for heater usage is already high, I do want to keep it down (or off if I can).

I used to like snow. This stopped some years ago when I slipped and fell on a slippery part of a road and broke my arm.

Yikes! That's no good. My friend moved to Massachusetts from Southern California and slipped on the ice and broke an ankle. Of course we don't need snow for things to get slippery. Even rain or dew on a step to the porch can freeze overnight and be almost invisible.

I would love to could watch from the window, a snowfall, and a classic winter scenery. But unfortunately, in my city (Genova, Italy), this phenomenon, causes climate change, has not been present for over twenty years! And for me, it's sorry!

I've only been in a gentle snowfall once when I was at a conference in the mountains of Central California. That was kind of nice and I didn't have to shovel any snow or drive in it. But I was also at another conference in Illinois after Christmas one year and had to walk blocks in a blizzard. I got very sick from the experience and not being home to rest and take care of the illness. I would prefer to stay out of snow for the rest of my life.

Yes, it snows here. We had a dusting last week. My neighbor told me we don't get much snow in this part, so I'm glad about that. It didn't bother me when I was young but with each passing year, I can do with less of it.

no four seasons here near the equator, but we still decorate for christmas using fake trees and buy lights and decors like santa, reindeer,snowflakes, etc. i appreciate this picture as is. i don't wonder if the snowman is fake or it clashes with the autumn leaves.

The snowman does not look like he belongs there. He needs snow underneath him. We have gotten snow here in Jerusalem. When I had my dog I loved to watch her play in the snow. I had more than my share of it growing up in Minneapolis.

You're right. It looks odd to see a snowman sitting on a green lawn, or any ground cover that's not snow.

@Hannihar I agree, but almost everyone who decorates here has a fake snowman in their yard. It's the only way they see snow.

Ofcourse it snows where I live. This post tells about it
I have always longed for snow but sadly it has evaded or avoided me. I have been to countries where snowing at the time I visited there was normal. But it did...
