Christmas is canceled
That was the first thing I heard this morning when I got out of bed. It was meant as a joke, but it had far-reaching ramifications. The traditional family event (50-60 hungry people with gifts, etc) was not going to happen.
This is why.
More than a foot of snow has fallen in the last 24 hours. It has provided a number of great stories on one of the best family-visit trips I’ve taken in a while.
The the funny thing is this…as much as my dad would’ve liked to bring the family together tonight…it seems we have all the family we need snowed-in right here.
My ass is cold, so I’m going to stand by the fire and smile.
