Bone-chilling draughts that make us shiver!

2010 Christmas snow in Coweta County GAFrom 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!!!

Good Sunday morning Richard.  We woke this morning to another (our 3rd) snow and bone chilly 26 degrees.  Bring it on... Bring it on!

I love a white Christmas and I'm no stranger to snow either being raised in northern Ontario in Canada.  But, I moved to Maryland in 1997 and the wind here does make me shiver!!  Enjoy your day!!

Very nicely done Richard. We moved from the Chicago area to Nashville seven years ago and only miss the white stuff one day of the year--Chrismas Eve!

Nice ode to the holidays of past and present.  Nice ditty too!  I grew up in Southern California.  No memories of a white Christmas . . . EVER!
