The First White Christmas in 42 Years!

**I have so many blog posts to catch up on that I'm going to be posting several a day for the next few days so keep scrolling down to see other new posts**

In North Carolina, we got an additional Christmas present yesterday... a white Christmas!! It's the first measurable snowfall we've had on Christmas day since 1969 when this area got an inch of snow. Before that it was in 1947 when this area got almost 3". The snow started around noon on Christmas day and it was still snowing this morning.
Nothing like snow falling while the Christmas tree is still up.

Here's what the backyard looked like this morning. Click to enlarge.

We have between 7-8 inches of snow!

The snow is the most beautiful kind... the kind that sticks to everything.
We have to enjoy it while it lasts. It's supposed to be 60 degrees here on New Year's Day. That's what I love about North Carolina. We get the beauty of winter but a break from it every now and then.
