Every year people talk about the White Christmas we haven´t seen in years. Will it come this year? We always get some snow, but it hasn´t been until early January. I remember when I was in high school, we wore rubber boots and umbrella to church on Christmas Eve. I have to go back to when I was a child to remember a lot of snow over the Christmas Holiday.

Well, this year we got enough to last us for years. Just last night we got 60 cm or 2 feet of snow. It has been a total chaos on the roads today. When I went out this morning I could barely get out my door. The plow people haven´t been here in two days. Had to shovel my way out to the main street. Can´t say I was very happy. Where is the plow when you need it? The worst part is that the snow came, then it melted, then it froze again before new snow came. This means that there is a thin layer of ice under the snow. It is very difficult to walk on and dangerous to drive. The temperature is bad too. Right now it is only -6°C/22°F, but it has been -10°C/13°F for a week. Towards New Years Eve it is dropping again to -17°C/3°F. Just HORRIBLE! Think I´m going to hibernate. Please wake me up in the spring!

Snow might look pretty to some of you, but it is a hassle to those us, who have to live with it!

Merry White Christmas!
