From Northern parts the gales deliver.
Bone-chilling draughts that make us shiver,
And dust our roofs with frosty glaze,
In festive garb for the holidays!
(R Weisser 2013)
I was born and reared in Pennsylvania, so the notion of snow in time for the holidays is not foreign to me.
But snow is a rare occurrence here in Georgia and a December dusting is even more unlikely.
In the forty plus years that I have lived here in the South, I can recall only one snow shower on Christmas Eve and one significant accumulation of Christmas Day.
But even though the odds of a middle Georgia white Christmas are pretty remote, I still relish the possibility every year.
Because it takes me back to happy days in Western Pennsylvania.
And times when ice, snow and cold would warm the heart!!!
