I had the best Christmas that I've had in several years, at least since my husband died in 2007, and am enormously grateful to my daughter, Allison, and her family and the many cousins and old friends who wrote and phoned (and sent chocolate and invitations to their own family gatherings!) but to all of the Blog Readers who sent Email cards and letters, to the "children" who I watched grow up and who sent pictures of their children and, especially, to my friend of forty- three years, Jean Davis! I couldn't ask for more!

But now I think I need a week of R. & R. & R. & R. ----- rest, recuperation, reorganization and time to write and send replies!

Here's just a brief start to the week.

It's Garbage Day

30 degrees and cloudy at 7:30

The Weather Forecast from YNN: "Variably Cloudy Overnight. Rain to Snow Tuesday Night.

Tonight will be pretty uneventful across the region. After seeing skies clear for a time, look for increasing clouds towards daybreak.

Tuesday will be a breezy, relatively mild day across the region. Rain will move in from southwest to northeast by the mid afternoon. Rain will mix with snow for a time Tuesday night and then flip over to wet snow by Wednesday morning. Lake enhanced snow showers will also develop Wednesday morning which could lead to some slick travel.

Other than a few flurries Thursday will be a less breezy, seasonable day. Another storm will move in from the west of Friday with some area wide light snow."



Along with all of your Email Greetings ............ this picture and note from Susan Lee Ryerson:

"We had a White Christmas here in Amarillo, Texas --- just like I remember growing up in Waterville! Best to All!" (Thanks loads, Susan!)
