I got up on Christmas Eve to a winter wonderland and before long, the winds were blowing so hard that the weather service announced we were in a full-fledged blizzard! Before it was all over, we had 15-16 inches in my little town! This is the first time in MY lifetime that this has happened here. We normally get maybe an inch or two of snow (or ICE, rather) every year, and usually in January or February. More on this later, but wanted to leave you a picture of my parents house (ahem...also where I reside). :) Isn't it pretty?! I love the cold and the snow...however, getting snowed IN is not the greatest...especially when it ruins Christmas for a lot of people. This was definitely a Christmas we will never forget!
