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!
