Most years we have a white Christmas here in the Northland. But this year it looks unlikely. Before Thanksgiving we got a few inches that have long since melted. This week we had rain--rivers of it. A few degrees colder and we would have gotten exactly what we are hoping for this week before Christmas--a foot of snow. Instead we have wet, soggy leaves on the forest floor and drab gray skies. The dusting yesterday was enough for slippery roads, not enough for a snowman.
So I decided to pull out some pictures of former years.
