Observations

I'm sitting in the parking lot of the VERY crowded mall near my home, and I felt I needed to share a few things with my friends before I headed inside. (By the by, I'm actually posting this from my new phone. Santa came a little early to La Casa de ChiTown )

First, as I was circling the parking lot for the 42nd time, I stopped to let a mom and her daughter, who looked about 4 or 5, cross in front of me. Now, the temperature displayed on my dashboard currently says 33. Neither one of them had a coat on, and the daughter was drinking a slushy. Now THAT'S how we do it around here!

For about a week or so, the weather forecasts have been causing havoc around here because it's been unseasonably warm, AND we were told we would NOT be having a white Christmas. I mean, WTF, seriously?!

Well, as I was driving around, looking for a spot, and enjoying some SNC on my CD player, look what started:

Ok, now I'm off to fight the crowds. Thankfully, I don't think much could ruin my good mood now.

**Update**
Ok, it's about 2 am, and I'm just getting a chance to check emails/blogs. Apparently, I don't really know what the hell I'm doing yet with my new phone, cuz this never posted! And, the video wasn't attached. I fixed it, I think, but I don't think the video is very good. :(

Oh, and that's about all the snow we got. There's not one single flake hanging around. :(

There's still time! It's only Christmas Eve! I have HOPE for snow for you. And congratulations on your new phone!

Sorry about no snow...seriously when I walked at a local walking trail with my friend very early Thursday there was so much frost on a bench it looked like snow! Enough for me to write "MERRY CHRISTMAS" in. It is "cold" here.... hitting in the 30's at night...the cat comes in and sits on the heater vent every morning and doesn't go outside again until it warms up.

Wishing for snow for your Christmas!

Yeah -- Christmas is the day you want snow. We have a very chilly rain here in South Texas.

Merry Christmas & God Bless!

I will be more than happy to send you ALL the snow that we will get on the prairie come January.

It's coming, I can feel it...

Ugh.
