White Christmas

You may have heard that Atlanta had a white Christmas for the first time in over a hundred years. It was big news; honestly, the president could have decided "Who needs balmy Hawaii? Let's go to Atlanta!" and the news would STILL have been all about the snow and how deep (1/4 inch all the way to 3 or 4 inches!) it was where.
It was a perfect snow. It started around noon, right as our family arrived for Christmas dinner. It didn't start to stick until about 4:00, just as we had finished presents and dessert, so that they all looked outside and said, "We'd better go before the roads get bad."
And then we left the rest of the dishes and wrapping paper and boxes and sat wrapped in our quilts with our new books or electronic gadgets for the rest of a perfectly lovely evening.
It was the best Christmas present of the year! I hope you had a peaceful and relaxing day as well.
