Let us know how much snow you wound up getting in your neighborhood and where that neighborhood is. Alsom to add a little color, take (or find) a photo of the snowfall and post the link here. On the chance it doesn't happen to snow on Christmas, we'll then have a collection of "white" photos to turn it into a White Christmas. <BR> <BR> Alan Fri, 19 Dec 2008 03:47:50 EST Great Team to join for daily Challenges http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x19997x20187050 <link>www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i<BR>ndividual.asp?gid=27329 </link> <BR> <BR> Hi all, <BR> <BR> Above is a new group I started to add daily challenges into our workouts and to put list our goals for every month.
