January 21, 2007

Journal, Lloyd

Wintercoat (75% off at Eddie Bower 8 years ago) $100

Getting everyone to hum It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas Priceless

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow
I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas
Dashing through the Snow, In a One Horse Open Sleigh
Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful
Just hear those Sleigh Bells Jinglin', Ring-ting-tinglin' too...

    On our way to church this morning, the song to hum was, “Slip Slidin’ Away!” But, I’ll bet you won’t find THAT on any Christmas album.

    Looks like winter wonderland to me. This is the year it was supposed to be exceptionally warm. Right??

    So, how much snow did you get? We were supposed to get four to six inches of very light, powdery snow and ended up with one inch of very heavy, wet near-slush snow. Rachel wants a winter like your pictures show.

    Lloyd, our main snow scooper, said that this was pretty light stuff -- about five or six inches. Sorry about the slush you got. There is no greater disappointment! (Shaking fist at sky.)
