A white Christmas is a sure thing. When we woke up on December 18, one week before Christmas, we received 16 inches of lovely snow – not too heavy. It took a good part of the day to clear streets and sidewalks. I think we were all glad to return to our houses where we could sit near our brilliant Christmas trees and enjoy a hot toddy – or a cup of hot cocoa. We watched the old musical “White Christmas” with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye and enjoyed a perfect evening of delight.
On December 19 we are enjoying some sun but chilly temperatures. There is no traipsing out to the shed or any tools. When we celebrate white Christmas weather we hope it lasts for days.
We have been sitting out on the gravel ‘patio’ where we could visit in proper social distance seating. The table is now covered with 16 inches of snow. A friend donated a metal cradle to hold a campfire, but our wood was wet and we never got it working properly, but we have hopes, after we dig out some. I don’t think the watchful Krishna has ever seen anything quite like this.
I wonder about other landscapes and will be watching.
Daughter Betsy sent us photos of snowfall in the northern part of the state, shown deep on the patio furniture. In just a few hours it will officially be winter.
Merry Christmas to All!
