Rare White Christmas

We don't get "white Christmas" very often. Even though we have snow almost every year, it's usually 2-4 winter events that last 2-5 days. It's a long shot to have it happen on Christmas day for us.

Some nutjob was out taking photos at dawn in our yard... in the 15 degree paradise. I talked him into giving me a couple of the pics.

I guess everyone else at my house stayed up too late because I just went in, and nothing is stirring, not even a mouse. The mice are all frozen...


This is out the back of our house. There are several homes built
around this pond. We live in a very small town...


... as you can see from this shot down the road from the front of our house.
Off in the distance is our one stop sign. You know the place where
you get when you finally reach the "end of the road"? We live just past that...

How awesome is our God to give your family a "White Christmas!" Wow! Double Wow!! I think I'm jealous...in a good way that is! :)
It is a beautiful sight, and you're right "not a creature was stirring & the mice could well have frozen! (You are funny!)

Out here in Sunny Southern California I merely keep praying for "colder" weather...at least so that it has some resemblence of Christmas and I will at least have a need for a sweater and can have a fire in my fireplace! Want to trade? :)

MERRY CHRISTMAS RIGG FAMILY & A HEALTHY, BLESSED 2010!
(What a holy day we celebrate!)

Merry Christmas Riggs Family! We got a white Christmas too (we're not too terribly far from you guys - over in Kansas!).

Hope you had a lovely day.

Love,

The pictures are gorgeous and I am envious as all we have had this Christmas Day is a windy, cold and rainy day. (heavy rains and wind).

I have to ask.... The "nutjob" that took the pictures wouldn't go by the name of "Brent" would he???

We lived in one of those "end of the road" towns at Cross Plains, TN for awhile. We didn't have a stop sign, but a flashing yellow light.

Glad you all are all tucked safely at home together and tucked safely in the arms of God.

love and prayers and Merry Christmas...
