Sara Homan, Realtor, Homes, Farms & 55+ (Coldwell Banker Ellison Realty 352-209-4044)

And it's really not delightful,

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!

Then to the Northern traffic will pick up.

For the summer your sons & daughters,

Will swim in our beautiful waters.

Then when the Autumn leaves are fallin',

To Florida you'll be a callin' and again...

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
