What? STILL no snow???

What is wrong with this picture?  OK so there is no picture, but you know what I mean. We have NO SNOW.  It's just not Christmas without a blanket of snow on the ground! This is one of the weirdest Christmas's in years!  Oh believe me, it's sure cold enough outside, but HEY, we NEED some snow around here. PRONTO!
