A wintry landscape greets the eye wherever one may look, and we’ve had several cold days. Tonight there is a bluish look near the horizon that seems to presage a Chinook. Have had some two inches of snow and frost since Christmas. And speaking of that day, we had another of those awful “skimpy” affairs, which leaves us all wondering “where to put the new things, when we barely had room enough for the old!” Ethel Dobson Robinson on Christmas 1936

I got a picture of the house as the snow began to go. But we will have more, I hope. Myrtle (Lynn) Dobson, Christmas 1933
Real time – I don’t know if the warming trend we’re now experiencing can be defined as a “Chinook” or not. At any rate, after a weekend with highs in the teens and lows around zero, the predicted high for today is 45 with a wind advisory. Our driveway and street are slushy while the main road is just wet. But, more cold and snow is predicted, so I’m going out this afternoon.
Long story short, we have decided not to spend Christmas at the homestead this year. We’re concerned about the condition of our lane and the possibility of more snow even if we did get in. Frankly, I’m relieved. Our little town house will be cramped, but we have planned outings with family and friends, and if we need something, we can go to the store. Meanwhile, a snowy country Christmas exists in imagination. KW
