Where I live, it is about a 50/50 chance that we get a white Christmas. This year we did. We got one snow before Halloween, which was early for us. Then we rained dry with temperatures jumping up and down every few days, but on the 20th the icy precipitation arrived followed by 3” of snow and very cold temperatures. It will remain cold enough that the snow will easily last beyond Christmas.
I’m not a big fan of winter and snow and short daylight hours but it was enjoyable to sit and watch the snow falling outside. We used the fireplace for the first time this season when the forecast was for a 0º overnight low.
I’ll take a few days off to enjoy family time.
