Making Do With What You Have

The icon picture shows that we do get snow here in Fernley, and indeed one year we got a snowfall around Christmas that led to my favorite photo of the house. But we're still a desert, and when it comes time to decorate for the holiday, you can't expect snow, so you make do with what you have, as our neighbors did this week.

I'm glad I spotted this and walked over to take a photo yesterday, because an RV has parked right in front of it today, which would have blocked the view.
