Christmas in our fair River City is usually warm and sunny. Snow is rare these days, and whatever we get tends to happen in January or February, as in the picture at the right. Wolfgang's genetic hodgepodge includes a probable dose of Siberian Husky, and he's always happy when the temperature dips below freezing.
Growing up it was hard to reconcile the Currier & Ives mythos with a home town that sometimes involved mowing the grass well into November. But as I've gained friends in Chile, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa through this blog, it's become easier to associate Christmas with sunny weather. With that in mind, Wolfie and I wish you a Merry Christmas, and hope that wherever you find yourself this holiday season, you are surrounded by loved ones and good cheer.
