The difference in 24 hours…

Yesterday morning at this time the temperature outside my door was 36°…Today it’s 61. When the sun rose yesterday the ground was white with the second frost of the year. I’ll be surprised if we see the sun this morning.

I see this toasty weather outside my door isn’t being felt in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It sure looks like winter has come a calling up on the mountains. Temps in the single digits last night sure would have kept me sleeping close to the fireplace. Ray doesn’t look too optimistic about a white Christma, but there is still time for that to change…

Reading my email this morning I had a surprise from sitemeter.  There was a large spike in readers here yesterday…Yep, more than the normal 3 or4 visitors. Sitemeter said I was pushin’ 30 visitors so I had to go look at the stats…Google image searches for Christmas Snow hitting on the shot I posted for a Photo Friday Challenge with the subject of “Oddity”.

What a glorious Christmas present that was on Christmas Eve 2004…Snow, lots of snow, falling on Christmas Eve. My family played out in the snow till well after midnight. Mainly we all wanted to stay up to see snow falling on Christmas Day…and it did. By morning there was about 5 inches of snow on the ground. Now for all of you northerners who see snow all the time 5 inches isn’t anything to write home about…But here on the Texas Gulf Coast any snow is a miracle and snow on Christmas Day ranks as a real Christmas Miracle…

Time to hit the road and I was right, no sun this morning…

One thought on “The difference in 24 hours…”

  1. What are you talking about? I hate morning sun. Firstly it wakes me up way to early for me to want to be awake, and lastly there is sun in my eyes as I try to drive.

    We are lucky there is no sun. It would also make it warmer than it already feels. And yesterday was too cold, I couldn’t even work without shivering.

    Oh yeah, turns out I don’t get off until the 21st also, stupid me and thinking it was Wednesday.
