A white Christmas is highly overrated, unless one can stay home. I got
out of Atlanta just as the snow started flying. I got into Richmond just
as it started here. The governor of Virginia declared a state of
emergency before we went to bed. I flew up to visit my Dad, but I've
mostly been stuck at my sister's since the side roads haven't been
plowed or sanded. We got over there for a little while this afternoon
when the sun was high, but it was already icing again and becoming
treacherous just now as we came in. And Dad only lives about a mile from

I confess I'm a tad jealous. Although, we actually got FLAKES last night in 
Beaufort, SC!!! It was cool. I knew it wouldn't stick, but it sure looked 
pretty coming down. But, supposed to be 68 on Saturday and I'm looking 
forward to that too! LOL! Got a foster dog on Christmas Eve. Her name is 
Avery, after a Christmas Elf. She is too cute, learning to play with my 
Vidalia. Those of you on facebook can see a picture of Vidalia in her elf 
suit for Christmas. LOL! It's hysterical! I hope everyone had a fabulous 
Christmas and will have a happy new year!!!!!!

We had a true white Christmas. Started snowing on the 24th and by the 
time it ended Christmas morning, there was 4 inches on the ground. We 
get orioles up here in the summer, though they mostly confine 
themselves to the woods. Perhaps the one you saw was simply late to 
start migrating, and was passing through your yard.
