Actually, I have always lived surrounded by mountains. I guess you get used to it. Right now Tim and I are so focused on retiring and moving to South Carolina that we don't have time to appreciate this. I am sure once we have moved we will love coming back and experiencing this again.
We have given up skiing for the time being, afraid that a broken leg or hip might delay our plans. It is hard to enjoy snow when you can't get out and play in it. :evil:
