Never thought it would happen this way, but it’s snowing on Christmas day! Yesterday, here in Crestline, the high temperature was 60–beautiful blue skies–perfect weather…that is for Easter. Awful Christmas weather. But, although I certainly did not expect it, change was on its way.

The house was quiet as Christmas dawned. I was the only one astir as I peered through my kitchen window and saw the thermometer to read 29 degrees. Yes! And just a few minutes ago, here an hour before noon, it began snowing! Snowing? Yes, snowing.

Well, sort of. Look across the lake through my dining room window and I’m afraid you’ll see clear blue skies and not a hint of cloud. Yes, the temperature has dropped drastically, and strong winds have blown in. It’s blustery and chilly, but…the…snow…I must confess it to be only observable on the computer pages of WordPress. Wonderful Matt with the Christmas Spirit exuding from his youthful geeky mind noted my needs, somehow caused snow to drift in and even sent a message on my screen, so I would be sure to notice.

Thank you, Matt. Thank you WordPress. Thank you Jesus for Christmas. Thank you my friends and family who read my words today. Might consider pulling on a jacket, and pouring a dark, sweet cup of hot chocolate for the remainder of time on my site. It’s chilly around here. It’s snowing!
