    Winter in Vermont


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     While visiting her family in Burlington, Vermont, KCRep captured photographs of she and her relatives having fun in the snow. 'This trip to Vermont was the first time in my life that I woke up to see snow on the ground. It was a fun and magical time playing in the first snowfall of the season. For someone who was born and raised in California, this was a very special surprise,' she said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    My son and I went to visit my sister and her family in Vermont for Thanksgiving one year. Little did I know I would be smack dab in the middle of a Winter Wonderland the day I was to fly back home. Up until that day it was all sunny and bright.

    My son spent the night at my sisters house that night while I stayed at my hotel. I had the use of my sisters van the entire week I was there. On the day my son and I were to fly back home I packed our bags. When I opened the hotel door this is what I saw. All I could think of was how do I drive to my sisters house in this! Being from California I'd barely ever seen snow let alone drive in it.

    So I called my sisters house, waking them up, my brother-in-law answered, I told him I needed someone to pick me up because I can't drive in snow. He told me it would be ok, I said are you sure? He then decided to look out the window then came back and said "I'll be right there". He had no idea how much snow had fallen overnight.

    The first picture is what I saw when I opened the door.

    Second picture is my sister's neighborhood that day.

    Third is my brother-in-law and my son playing in the snow that day.

    Fourth is my niece making a snow angel.
