It is Christmas eve. The ice storm had put everyone on lockdown from Saturday night until this morning. But now, the blue sky and the sun are back. Driving along the streets I realized all I want for Christmas was…. that the sun would shine long and warm enough to thaw the thick ice on the trees with their branches hanging close to the ground, especially the beautiful birches.
But I guess, the best present is that we did not loose power like so many others in Maine. It is warm, candles are for decor, the internet is working, the telephone and oven, too. Merry Christmas!
