The Big Chill


I was in a terrible mood on Wednesday. It was raining buckets. The house was a muddy mess and my holiday spirit was all but gone. 

Thursday morning it was more buckets of rain. More mud. More sour mood. Then the magic happened.

At about 10 am the terrible storm sweeping the country blew through. The temperature dropped about 20 degrees and the rain turned to...........snow. Well, something like snow. 

Cue up Bing Crosby, turn on the twinkling humbug was gone. It was just the briefest of glimpses of a winter wonderland but I'll take what I can get. It's not very often I get to make the Christmas Eve lasagna while watching flakes fall. 
Merry Christmas Eve! 

And...a very warm and happy Hanukkah on this ridiculously cold day. Chag sameach!


  1. The gloomy weather here has broken and the sun shines even if it is below freezing again today! Merry Christmas!

  2. We got a wee bit more snow than you (about 5 inches total), and it did make things feel very festive
