WHITE CHRISTMAS



It was "beginning to look a lot like Christmas" the second week of December 2009. My first daughter was delighted. She had her 17th birthday party after her last day of school in 2009 ... the kids went sledding on 10" of snow, had cocoa, made s'mores at the firepit, (got my hardwoods pretty messed up).
WHO WAS IT that was "dreaming of a White Christmas"? We got 12" more from Christmas Eve through Christmas Day!

The weather outside is frightful!


The weather outside is FRIGHTFUL and it's trying to come INSIDE! Even with the storm window closed and this old window was freshly glazed 5 years ago (glaze lasts 50 years)- the wind is so strong that the snow is sneaking up through the sill drain (purposely there so rain won't collect in the sill). If you squint you can see outside drifting on the neighbor's barbeque. It's a day for knitting! -and maybe some baking since the kids have another snow day!
