Cool Yule

Oh, yay...more snow! Granted, not as much as a couple weeks ago or what the east coast received over the weekend, but still unneeded. It started snowing about 9 o'clock last night and continued light and steady throughout the night. It was supposed to taper off mid-morning and be done by noon. Yeah, right. It didn't stop until around 4pm, leaving us with another four inches of the white stuff, a good inch or so above what was expected. At least this was a light, fluffy snow and not more heavy wet stuff like what we received during the blizzard earlier this month. Trees are still suffering damage caused by that wet, heavy stuff. The tops of a few tall pines out at work have snapped clean off from the weight of that heavy snow bowing their branches.

The winter weather isn't over yet, either. A Winter Storm Warning has been issued from noon Wednesday until noon Friday. It is to start out as snow Wednesday afternoon, change into a rain/snow/sleet mix during Thursday, and back into snow again Friday. In other words, the roads are going to be a major mess and airports will again suffer delays.

The weather has cancelled my plans for Christmas. We were to have a family get-together Friday afternoon, but due to the weather, it has been moved to Saturday so people do not have to risk being out in bad weather. Don't know if sister in Illinois will still make the trip up to see Mom, or if they will come up Saturday instead. No idea what their plans were for Saturday.

Sunday is The Bug's fifth birthday. Uh-huh...five already! I can't believe she'll be entering kindergarten in the fall. When did that happen? This, of course, means I need to get my butt in gear tomorrow or Thursday and make her birthday card. I have an idea for it, just need to sit down and do it -- which is always the hardest part of any task!

I leave you with a final Christmas card for the year. Hope everyone has a COOL YULE!
