It appears displaying telephones is "Off-Topic" on this forum.

 >:( The snow has escaped, so I have to update the pictures.  ;)
We have been out in the woods and cut down our own tree as tradition, not the plastic looking beautiful and perfect tree. ;D Just a traditional one exactly as when I was a little kid.
 ;) Actually I love it.
Still waiting for snow.

If you don't celebrate Christmas, you may celebrate the longer days. ;D

Best Wishes from Hakadal

Merry Christmas, the sequel.  Anita and I didn't want to do a full-size Christmas Tree this year, so we got a "mini" Blue Spruce.  The ornament on the left is a Pot of Gold.  Each year we pick out one ornament to symbolize what we hope for in the coming year.  The POG ornament was perfect.  The picture is a little fuzzy because I had to turn the flash off to get the lights to show.

Hey, dsk, I can send you some!  ;) We got 8 inches last night.

Just glanced out our upstairs window to see this, our neighbor's colorful display across the street covered with fresh, white snow.

Dang, where are you.

In Minnesota we have quite a bit accumulated, but no big snow falls.

We had about 5-7 inches of new snow on the ground.  But yesterday it rained most of the day and night and 95% of it is gone.  We were fortunate because the freezing line was just north of us so we missed out on the ice.  That cause power outages in the areas that weren't so lucky.

The snow photo look very nice, as do the others.

Weather forecasters were predicting yesterday that Waukesha would get 3-4 inches today. My dad wasn't too happy today when he had to plow double that!

Our Christmas snow arrived just a few days to early this year so it is all gone as of yesterday. We don't always get snow over the winter in Vancouver (for example 2010 when we hosted the Winter Olympics!) but most years at some point between November and February there will be just enough to turn driving into a nightmare!

I haven't been around here quite as much as usual lately due to our globe hopping travels now that I am retired which means more travelling to come next year as well.

I hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas holiday and all the best to you all in 2014.

The weather around here has been about 6 degrees warmer than normal the past week or so. Around 83 F, tomorrow we are supposed to get a cold front with a high of only 75.

Wow, 75!  That sounds nice.  Here's the extended forecast for the Detroit area...beginning with today.
