Yesterday, I checked the calender to make sure I am not in a fog and that it is indeed December. Yesterday, I also checked the thermometer to verify that it is cold (overnight lows in the teens.) However, yesterday, in spite of those important factors, THIS is all the snow we got.
It does occasionally happen that Utah does not have snow for Christmas. Yet, it has been a while since I remember this happening. I am getting nervous (if you can't tell). And, although I am always ready for the snow to be gone by March, I am equally anxious for there to be snow for Christmas. It just doesn't seem right without it.
So, today, I am celebrating the SKIFF of snow we received yesterday in hopes that there is much more to come in the next few weeks. Is anyone else as anxious as me?
By the way, it has mostly melted today. There is just a little bit left in the shady parts of the yard. The sun came out strong.
