Baby, it's cold outside (at least in the Northern Hemisphere)! Do you prefer your holidays to be white, or would you rather spend them basking in the sun?
I like to have a white Christmas if I don't have to be anywhere or at least the roads clear. A few years ago (2008 I believe); we got hit with a massive blizzard (at least to Oklahoma's standards) on Christmas eve. We got somewhere in the vicinity of 18" of snow. It took my husband 12 hours to get home and he was 25 miles away. Luckily he was not one of the poor unfortunates that got stuck in the snow. He did rescue as many as he could without a 4x4. That same day my mom and my brother made a quick run into town (they live in a tiny suburb of Oklahoma City) to get some last minute items. They wound up getting stuck in the snow and walking about a half mile to a nearby house. We are lucky the people were home and let my mom and my brother stay the night there. I am very thankful to complete strangers for taking my family in. My dad rode the tractor the next morning and got my mom's truck unstuck. Snow drifts were in the upwards of 3 feet. Driving out on Christmas day (we didn't miss) it took us twice as long as it normally would have, but the drive was beautiful. Everything was so still and quiet and covered with snow. I do not wish another blizzard but having a pretty blanket of snow would be nice. It makes the day seem more special and homey.
I've been busy today. I got all my Christmas shopping done (yay). I baked 7 dozen cookies and made fudge. Now I get to put all of it together into goodie bags for my husband's work tomorrow. And he was complaining that he had to sign his name to 40 cards...men...ha!
