A White Christmas...just in time!

First of all, I would like to wish everyone the happiest of Holidays. Once again Wanda and I made the full circut of parents, all three sets. It was absolutely wonderful to have the time to spend with each of the families. Plus the fact that that means I got to enjoy 3 great holiday meals, ranging from Ham, to a Crown Roast of Pork, to Goose. We were even blessed with a White Christmas at the last moment. Originally, they had said no White Christmas, but by Christmas Eve day they were calling for flurries. Later that night and 4 inches later the weather changed their forcast to say that we would wake up with 8-10 inches, and that is exactly what happened. Though snow is a trivial point to Christmas (the truly important thing is spending time with loved ones), I love snow and it just seems to help to make the day seem that more cozy and homey. Luckily, the plows were working overtime (bummer for them) and Wanda and I were able to take off from my parents at noon to make it to another set of her parents just in time for another holiday dinner. I don't think I am going to eat for a week!!!!!!:bounce: :bounce:

I do agree with all of you, snow lovers! Unluckily we never get a White Christmas here, since (as everybody knows) the Italian Riviera is famous for its mild weather...that means wonderful springs, summers and falls but RAIN, RAIN and RAIN again all winter long, and only a couple of ridiculous 2-3 inch snowfalls every three or four years :( I don't care about rain as I love it, but at least a proper snowfall every year would be great!
We get better only seldom, i.e. six years ago, when we had a 6-7 inch snowfall (which is exceptional here) just during the New Year's Eve, that was really FUN!

Oh, you lucky people...


P.S. The only advantage we have is that we need only 2 hours driving to reach Mont Blanc...
