I woke up really early this morning, looking outside hoping to see snow on my lawn. My kids just love it when it snows over Christmas (truthfully, medicine what kids don’t?) and given that this is the first year we’re not altogether as a family (first Christmas-divorce), I was hoping that a white Christmas would make things a little better.
I’ve been on top of Accuweather for days. First of all it looked like there was going to be snow in Harrisburg, then they said it would only be up until Christmas Eve and now it looks like their prediction for a non-white Christmas was correct.
We did enjoy a bit of snow yesterday though. The kids actually tried to build a snowman but there didn’t seem quite enough white fluffy stuff on the ground yet. Still, they certainly had a jolly good time trying and, truthfully, this year I even got into it with them. I think in years past I never did because it always bothered Joanne – now we’re no longer together I can be a kid again. She hated how they made such a mess of the house when they were done so I always tried to stop them too. But this year, as the old adage goes, when the cat’s away, the mice will play. And it seems like these mice are going to be playing for a long time to come.
Here’s to a merry Christmas to all in Harrisburg – white or not!
