With all the snow, ice and cold temps we've had... un-decorating the outside of the house from Christmas has proven difficult. There has always been something, weather related, interfering with getting the job done. Somehow I managed to pry the wreath with the big red bow off the front door. But currently on my porch, and in the front yard, there are half a dozen twig tree lights... and a 5ft green St. Nick frozen to the ground... covered with a foot of snow... making them impossible to remove. So, there they sit... almost into February waiting for the BIG thaw, so I can put them away for December. With the winter we're having, I'm anticipating them being out there until then.
