Looking down at your rental while it snows. Very cozy.

It does snow here sometimes during November through March. The average is about 10 inches a year though that varies a lot from year to year. Some years we have almost none.

If we have snow, the driveway will be shoveled. But if it is snowing when you show up, you may have to park your car by the street (on the driveway) and walk to the rental. It is only about a 3-4 minute walk. The local roads are well maintained when we have snow.
Snow on branches in January. It is very pretty here when it snows.
