I shoud have kept my big mouth shut!

This is what happened a week ago last monday. And as I said "This does not happen here". Not this time of year.
I know this isn't much and it did not last long. It was mostly gone by late afternoon. But it stayed cold and it got down into the teens at night. Alot of people's car locks were frozen.
And even the worm bed was frozen with ice and frost across the top.
But then it happened again yesterday! This is what I arrived home to at 0800. It was coming down pretty good and it covered the ground  in very short order. When I went to bed around 0930 (I work nights) it was still coming down. The kids got a day out of school and alot of places were closed.
And this is what it looked like when I got up around 1430. The tempreture was around 34 degrees and there was some melting. But last nights low was 30 and everything froze over again.
Like I said "I should have kept my mouth shut"! Talk about it and it will happen! Now the 10 day forcast calls for snow showers on Christmas eve. I have not had a white Chrismas sense I lived in Iowa in 1996 - 98. I have to addmit that I hope it happens! Nothing like Chistmas with Family and friends, in a nice warm house with a fire going in the fire place and muld-cider on the stove!
Merry Christmas YA'ALL! From North Carolina!.
