frosty, don't hold your breath

Today we were sitting together, looking out the window at the blue skies and green grass outside Eben-Holden Hall. Yes, it was the annual holiday luncheon at SLU. During the meal, a colleague recieved a cell call from his co-author who works at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. At that very moment in southern Nevada, his children were outside making snow men.

Might it then be appropriate for our kids go outside and make sand men?

Meteorologists are giving almost no chance of a White Christmas here.

Growing up in Southern California, our idea of a White Christmas was getting up early and seeing frost on the ground. Even that happened only rarely.

Suck it up. Make your adjustments. It will still be Christmas.

I love it!

Like your comment also to SAM that the best time for her foot operation was 6 weeks ago!
