The Christmas morning wake-up call came at 3:30am, with all four of us very much awake. Soon my parents joined us, and all the presents and playing with the same and special breakfast were over by 6am. I thought this only happened with toddlers!!
Of course, looking at our watches showing UK time, it means we slept in until 10:30am.
So as long as we’ve no place to go, let it snow ...
We have had a very white Christmas!
The howling wind was our first clue. A few inches of fresh white had fallen through the night onto the already snowy and icy ground. We foreigners ventured out Christmas morning to play in the new snow for a few minutes, but it was very cold out there and we didn’t last long!
By Boxing Day most of the snowdrifts across the road were broken by the snow plows, and we are mobile again.
