Despite two rather large snow storms this fall – one over Halloween and the other right before Thanksgiving – it has been an unusually mild fall and early winter here in New England.  Earlier this week temperature were mostly in the high 40’s and the prospects for a white Christmas were slim.

However, as if right on schedule, we had a nice snow fall over night with about six inches of snow that added a holiday hue to everything.  The forecast is calling for a little more snow tonight and temperatures well below freezing until after Christmas – which means we will have a white Christmas after all.

As Lost Cowboy fans know, I have an irrational fear of winter weather.  However, I was so happy to see the snow in time for Christmas.  So happy in fact, I jumped right outside this morning and built a good old fashioned snow man to keep watch in the yard.
