So you’re looking for a white Christmas. Well I just went outside (my only way to get reliable weather) and it’s in the mid 60’s. I think that is a ways from the temps, that would allow snow. Let me see, this is the 3rd day of winter correct? No problem, my gut tells me it’s coming. The wildlife still think its coming. The coat in my closet is at attention. The car is checking its undercoat. I see trucks at the ready at the salt dome.
I look to the sky. But there is nary a flake. But I guess winter is coming? Could it be one of those years were we just get a dusting of snow and its generally mild? Could it be a record warm winter? If you look at the weather map our country one divided into extremes. Sort of like our political process.
But lo and behold, mother nature helps me out and when I look up I see she has provided a white blanket of wings. Just like snowflakes they come in all shapes and sizes.
So no matter if the weather isn’t cooperating. You can still find white in the sky and ground if you’re looking for it. A white that only mother nature can put on the canvas.
So don’t fret. The real white out is coming. These guys are just a tease.
While I like a White Christmas as well as anyone, it doesn’t disappoint me not having to shovel or drive or find even more limited parking in snow before Christmas. Of course this torrential rain we are having doesn’t make it a paradise with the nice temps.
So here is a toast to the upcoming snowstorms where we can work remotely from home, and I can sneak out and play in the snow. Come on Mother Nature.
