A big (for this area) storm is headed our direction. They are anticipating at least a foot of snow. Of course, they always seem to go over the mark with these predictions and we will probably get about 8 inches. Still, a significant storm for here.
This is also the first year since we've moved here that there will be snow anywhere near Christmas. We have lived here 6 years now. (Juice and I just had a huge long "discussion" about when we moved to the area and how long we've been here. I, of course, was right. I love this blog for proving me right. :) Did you know I've been blogging here for 5 years now?!) Anyway, back to the snow. I don't think I can remember ever having snow near Christmas in all the years we've lived here. Since I have the last 5 Decembers on record, let's check them out.
Dec 2004: I talk about how hot it is, over 60 degrees. One thing that I didn't talk about was that our heater broke later that month and it was FREEZING cold. We went to Utah for a week and a half that Christmas break and got snow there. It also snowed late in January in 2005 but no snow for Christmas.
Dec 2005: No mention whatsoever of snow. At all.
Dec 2006: Ahh, the year we went downtown during Christmas break. We carried our coats the whole trip because it was so not cold.
Dec 2007: We had our first snowfall mid month and nothing after that.
Dec 2008: No snow. Just a lot of rain and some really cute little kids.
So maybe this is the year we have a white Christmas? I sure hope so!
PS- It's almost 4:15 in the afternoon and I have yet to even shower or get out of my pjs...it's been one of THOSE days. Ugh.
