Hopefully this is my last week of just making stuff up.

Christmas week produced some beautiful weather. The sun was almost noticeably warmer.

Here it is the end of yet another year and of the decade. All the news outlets are running articles on what has happened so I will not bother.

There is nothing quite like a couple of pre-Christmas snowfalls. It is so pretty with all the lights.

That was some serious rain on Monday afternoon and evening.

Growing up in Rew, Penn., snow was a fact of life.
