Holy White Christmas Batman!

I have lived in VA for the past 37 years and in all that time we have never, ever had a white Christmas. Ever.

Well tadpoles, seems as tho' this is the year. See the attractive dark purple patch on the map. See? The one that says that particular color = 12+ inches of snow?

Yes - that would be us. This is the forecast for this weekend. A foot of snow is not going to melt before the end of the week, right? RIGHT? [just go along, please?] I want a white Christmas.

I think it is the first time in my life I have ever loved the color purple. Yipppppeeeee!

Wallene and I were a little perplexed this afternoon when we received a "Storm Warning" alert on the TV. It was a beautiful, sunshiney [cold] day - then when we saw they meant this weekend we understood - it must be a storm of pretty epic porportions if they are warning us two days in advance with an alert during Oprah.

Ooooh, I am so hoping for this. heehee

Yay for you! I love snowy Christmases.

Take pictures, blow them up and in future Christmases, tape the pictures to your windows. Viola! White Christmas every year!

I am so jealous, but excited for you!

I live not too far from the turn off for the mtns. The past few days I have seen several pick up trucks hauling snow to their homes. I think it is something we may need to do. thomas keeps saying he can't wait until it snows, and then I have to explain to him we live in a desert.

Have a wonderful weekend.
