We got a surprise snow storm two weeks ago. The weather guys predicted ice with maybe a little snow, and we wound up with almost 9 inches. Snow before Christmas? Yes, please. We made snow ice cream, let Lois play with her doggie friends, went sledding, cooked and ate a lot of good food, and busted out our Christmas vinyl collection. There’s something so cheery about a fully decorated Christmas tree, a fire in the fireplace, Loretta Lynn blasting from the record player and pretty, white snow falling outside.
