If I had not been here, I would NOT have believed it. When I opened my eyes this morning I thought maybe it was a little foggy outside. Snow and sleet had been predicted for last night, but when I went to bed it was just cold. I crawled out of bed and looked out the window and a Christmas card was staring me in the face.

Believe me, this is not a place that gets snow. It's way too mild. I think the last snow we had was 10 or 12 flakes maybe ten years ago. And believe it or not, it will be back in the 70's by Sunday. ENT specialists make a fortune down here. Kids were out having snowball fights and, even though I didn't leave the house today, there were snowmen everywhere. The local news stations were having a day.

The snow is about gone now. The trees are bare again. But yards are still covered. We lost a lot of branches. Bonfire time again! I'm glad we had today. We had Christmas early. And for a little while the earth seemed so clean and sparkly.

Very frosty here but no snow - although i can tell you i would love to go to bed Christmas Eve with no snow and then wake up Christmas morning with a whiteout (childhood dream) LOL
