The weekend started with howling winds and ended with snow. Nice while it lasts. We have no illusions about it laying around for Christmas. Most likely it will be washed away by rain before the week is very old.
Even a little bit of snow makes a world of difference this time of the year when the sun hovers over the southern horizon for a few hours in the middle of the day before disappearing and leaving us to fill the black void with Christmas lights, good food and drink, and socializing with friends.
