After the first big snowfall of the year, it’s time to watch the weather forecasts closely. When there’s a guaranteed snowfall overnight, find your way under a window where your significant other lives. Carve your proposal into the snow, decorating it with drawings and spray colors if you like. One phone call will lead them to the window.

Make sure to do this after the early morning snow has fallen. If it continues snowing, it may cover up your proposal before your partner wakes up!

2. Head to a Historic Site
