This gift from Mother Nature assures us that we will indeed have a White Christmas, something that does not occur that often. It just happens that this is a repeat performance of a similar snowstorm the same time last year.
A blanket of snow is a picture perfect event, especially at this time of year. So for my friends in climates that rarely experience this, here are some of the sights I saw as I wandered around my own winter wonderland.
As I was clearing a path to feed the birds, my Cassie, one of my calico cats, was peering out the side kitchen window to see what I was doing.
The birds had been patiently waiting perched in a weeping cherry tree hoping I soon would be out to feed them.
When I walked out of my driveway to see just how the outside world was doing, there was my neighbor's giant evergreen, adorned with a blanket of white, a perfect Christmas tree.
