Oh my gosh Gail -- Saratoga Springs is my husband's hometown! Isn't it pretty?? If you haven't been there in a while, you should see it now. It was always lovely but now they have done so much work downtown - it's gorgeous. We were just there for Thanksgiving. Where did you go to school in Troy? Russell Sage, maybe?
I love the snow. One of the things I love about Rochester is we get LOTS of snow! Except for last year - when it was 60 in december and I was still weeding. And I love living just a few miles away from Lake Ontario.
