Haha, yes, snow is attractive at a very great distance, or when it's finished falling and is lying in a not-too-thick layer, say about a foot deep. A little snow is nice.

Hi there and welcome :wave:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

We're in the mountains too and i love it. We've got 360 degree mountain views. The weather here has been lovely though, took some pictures when we were out walking the dog yesterday just up the lane from our orchard.
