OK, so the idea of a "White Christymas" is really a fantasy. We do get them, but rarely. Usually were we are here in New Hampster, we don't get that kind of snow until AFTER Christmas. I think this year we're gonna have a white Christymas, though. Here is what it looked like last night at 11 PM. It had started snowing lightly at dinnertime.
No, Mom didn't go outside or open the window to take this picture. She took it right through the glass. (For the When When pictures, she does open the window.)
When we both woke up this morning at 8 AM, she took this picture. It hard to tell how much snow there is, although it's easy to see there is a LOT. Mom says the snow is probably deeper than I am tall. It is not snowing now, but the storm may still drop more snow.
One of the very nice things about waking up with this much snow on the ground is that it's quiet. The snow muffles the sound and it's very peaceful. It will stay that way until folks start their snow-throwing machines and shoveling their driveways, and the monster snowplows go by and shake the house.
