My first posting is on Christmas Eve, 2008. The gifts are wrapped, the house is clean, the food is prepared and the family is ready for a few days of relaxing and visiting. With over a foot of snow in our town, many folks will be staying close to home, likely walking to most destinations. This is the first time in my memory that we'll have a white Christmas. Mother Nature has stitched a feather-soft quilt of white on white and laid it gently over the landscape.
