Greetings from the Deep South!

...ya THINK? 

We don't get much snow here - if we get anything other than rain, it's usually sleet.  Last night, however, one last gift for Christmas - SNOW!  It's the first white Christmas here I can remember, although David says he can remember "a dusting" of snow when he was a very small boy.  I haven't been outside yet - just been enjoying the sight from inside the house (with a hot cup of tea). 

I think I'll work on some snowflakes later - got a new idea in mind that might make a fun class for "Tatting in a Winter Wonderland" in September, 2011.

UPDATE: The snowfall ended in the early afternoon and the sun came out.  There is still some snow on the ground, but the streets are just wet.  It's supposed to be about 20 degrees F tonight and up in the 40-degree range tomorow, so the snow will all be gone by tomorrow night.  I just hope the streets aren't icy in the morning!  The snowflake idea I had worked nicely - now to decide about beads!
