Well I hope you all enjoyed the day today with friends and family. Most of the Miami Valley woke up to a light dusting on top of our previous snow. Just enough to cover the dirty snow on the sides of the road, so that is a huge plus. I spent the day with family and my siblings were up to their normal tricks. My brother Clark had me in a family gift exchange for my mother's side of the family, but I will get to him in a second. I was told by my parents and by my grandparents it was going to begin at 3PM at my Uncle's house. Well our family drove 105 minutes down to their house just outside of Cincinnati, it turns out dinner wasn't supposed to be served until 6PM, and I was planning on leaving around 4PM (to get to work on time tonight) thinking I could eat, do quick gift exchange then leave....nope, I sat there watching the Star Wars marathon with my father, and my four other siblings while my mother chatted in the kitchen with the my grandparents and my aunt. My mother has 6 other siblings and only one showed up, just as I was walking out the door. Anyway, I was leaving and my brother said, "Oh yea, I had you, here you go." It was a JCPenney gift card with $250 written as the value with the 0 crossed off.... so only $25. As my best man, I hope these shenanigans will stop soon, before the wedding in 7 months.
Anyway, I did enjoy the time I did get to spend with the family I did get to see. The light snow will continue overnight and into tomorrow, although accumulations will be about half an inch or less. Temperatures will fall into the teens for Monday and Tuesday morning.....then comes the change. We have stayed close to or below freezing for almost two weeks now, but that will soon change. By next weekend, we will be dealing with rain and high temperatures in the mid and upper 40's....I dare say 50's may be within reach. With temperatures getting that warm, we could deal with a few storms possibly, so stay tuned, but I will let you get back to enjoying your time off, hopefully. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, have a good one!
