I’m so excited about Christmas and am completely through decorating my house. While our family and friends were here for Thanksgiving, Andrew helped with the outside lights, hung the giant wreath on our stair wall, and the lighted globes in the game room window. Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I try to make it last as long as I can. I forget about this beautiful young lady after I pack her up in January, but I always grin when I find her in a box as I tear through my decorations. She sets on the window sill behind my sink. We smile at each other a lot!
Finally, we’re having winter here and that makes me even more excited. I love every minute of it.
Alaskan Storm To Impact The Area Monday And Monday Night
Special Weather Statement From The National Weather Service
Saturday, November 25, 2006
A cold winter storm will likely bring the first widespread rain and snow of the season late Sunday night through Tuesday. Snow levels will start around 6000 feet, but lower to near 4500 feet by Monday night. Several inches of snow are possible. Snow, rain, and fog will likely make driving difficult.
A Gulf of Alaska weather system will move into Southern California late Sunday Night or early Monday. A cold front will likely bring rain on Monday, possibly starting as early as late Sunday night. Rainfall amounts will generally be one-quarter to one-half inch in coastal and valley areas, one-half to a little over an inch in the mountains and less than one-quarter inch in the deserts. The snow level will fall from 6000 feet Monday to 4500 feet Monday Night, and several inches of snow will be possible in the mountains. Areas of fog and gusty winds will occur at times in the mountains. The storm will exit the area Tuesday Morning and we will likely have Santa Ana winds developing around Wednesday as very strong high pressure moves into the Great Basin.
People planning to drive in the mountains Monday through early Tuesday should be prepared for winter weather, including possible snow on the roads, fog and gusty winds.
Jesus is the reason we have this beautiful holiday. During the next few weeks, let’s remember that, and offer Him our praise and worship as we go about our festive ways.
