Today was a special Christmas for me, it was my very first white Christmas. Living in the SF bay area in California all my life I've never had snowfall where I lived (we'd go to the mountains, but that's different).

 

This summer we moved up to Washington state, the home of rain. And occasionally snow.

 

Yesterday afternoon as we were coming home from church I started seeing this horizontally falling stuff coming out of the sky, my wife and I both shouted at the same time "SNOW!" It kept on coming, at home it started falling harder and kept on coming. We were not expecting it since the thermometer said it was 34F. But slowly it started staying on the ground, it started staying on the trees then the sidewalks. It took a long time to stay on the concrete patio but it finally did. 

 

We have a big picture window in our dining room overlooking the backyard, I pulled up a chair and just watched the snow for hours. I went outside and just stood in the falling snow, letting it fall all over me until my wife called me back in. (she grew up in New York and Pennsylvania, this was  old hat to her).

 

Our little white chihuahua had never seen snow, he went out, stepped into the snow a little, and came dashing back in, he didn't want any part of that strange cold stuff.

 

It stopped falling in the evening but by then it was just below freezing so it stayed around all night. In the morning I took the dog for a walk like I always do, he didn't seem to mind it if I was with him. When we got back inside, he dashed through his doggie door and spent the next 10 minutes playing in the snow, running around and rolling in it, he decided he really likes it.

 

Later in the morning the temperature went up to 35F and the snow started melting, but it just started snowing again, it's coming down like crazy right now and starting to cover things again.

 

I'm pretty excited, my first White Christmas.

Merry Christmas John, from icy Portland - my second white Christmas! I share your dog's enthusiasm for this cold fluffy stuff!

 

And Merry Christmas to the rest of y'all! Hope you're enjoying this time among loved ones and making great memories!

Lots of Snow here in the Eastern Canadian land.

 

Ripped a few CDs into the collection today, like the soundtrack for "Until the End of The World" with Depeche Mode and U2 tracks, and listened to some music on the SET Tube Amp as well.

 

Caught up with some of @JohnSwenson's thread on doing some star quad cabling for DC and perhaps interconnects, so that's a tempting proposition for DIY time during the holidays.

 

Merry Christmas everyone, be well. Especially Merry for our neighbours below!

Congrats, John, on you very first white Christmas. Thats how things were intended to be. Here in Michigan, we got an extra 5 inches of snow to freshen up what had fallen about a week earlier, for a perfect Christmas scene. I cannot imagine living somewhere without snow at Christmas.
