I’m not sure what’s a bigger Christmas miracle: the fact that we woke up the morning of Dec 24th to a beautiful snowfall (started in the night – forecasting up to 30cm at higher elevations) or the fact that the snow tires that I started trying to get over a month ago – arrived the day before yesterday – and were installed yesterday. Bring it on.
We were already out sledding this morning (we’ve learned now that helmets and goggles are in order as there are a lot of bushes/trees/stumps/rocks/fence posts to try and dodge) – and by this afternoon our tracks are almost covered over again. It’s been sunny all week – with quite a bit of rain – so it looked like it was going to be a green and muddy Christmas – but now everything is covered in a thick, thick blanket of snow. So far we’ve spent today playing games, sledding, watching Christmas shows and watching the snow fall outside.
