It doesn't look like Christmas without snow!

We are headed into the second week of December and we have no snow!!  It's been an extremely dry Fall, which has been great for the rivers, as we actually have a shot at a minor flood (or none at all!) next Spring.   That would be glorious!!   But it just doesn't look like Christmas without snow; not in Minnesota!  I can't remember the last time we had a 'brown' Christmas but it's been quite a few years.   We still have three weeks to go so hopefully we'll get a few inches by then.

Not only has it been dry, but it's been unseasonably warm and sunny.   No complaints about that!!  I took the girls to the Holiday Lights parade a couple weeks ago.  We go every year, but it's usually so cold that we don't last long.  This year it was 35 degrees and we saw most of the parade.  (I always try to get there after the firetrucks - with sirens blaring - have gone by.)   The girls were dressed in their winter jackets and reindeer antlers and they got more attention than the floats, I think.   They were pretty darn cute.
