The usual arguing over the tree was cut short this year due to the weather. When there's a foot of snow, no one really feels like examining each and every tree on the farm. Also, even the mediocre trees look great in the snow, so it's a bit difficult to make an informed decision.
It snowed steadily the whole time we were out at the farm, which led to lots of snowball fighting and wrestling, but very little actual examination of trees. We found one in the end and I'm sure it will be just fine.
