  Snow Visits the Mother Lode
Some of you in the Mother Lode are snowed in this morning? (But, of course, I made it to work!) I've got some quick pictures and a video (see below) of the snow in the Chaparral Heights area of Mono Vista (across from Soulsbyville). Got a little over 4 inches overnight at my house. And with Christmas just 10 days away and the white stuff having made an appearance, did you know how they determine whether it's a white Christmas or not? Any guesses? Here's how they measure it: if you have 1 inch of snow on the ground at 8 a.m Christmas morning, that's technically a "white Christmas." And so what if you only have 3/4 of an inch? Not good enough. And what if you have no snow at all at 8:00, but you get 15 feet exactly at 8:01? Not good enough either. Don't you just love it? I hope you enjoy the pictures and video of the snow. It actually makes me feel like singing (hold your ears): I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, Just like the ones I used to know, Where the treetops glisten, and children listen, To hear sleigh bells in the snow..."
