But there are actually Tampanians who long for the feel of a holiday season with snow, and all the fun that comes with it. They can take heart because Tampa won a national Twitter contest against ten other cities, winning a Winter Wonderland from McDonald’s McCafé … so now we get the best of both worlds, sunny, warm skies and snow!
