We were all set to take down our tree this weekend. But the snow saved it.
It has been an usually mild winter here in Salt Lake City. It started out hopeful with a dusting of snow right after Halloween. But after a few bizarre sub-zero days just after Thanksgiving the last month or so has been more like October or May -- just not Christmasy at all!
So when 10-inches were forcast for today we decided we needed to keep the tree up a little longer to enjoy it. And you should see it. Our living room window is wide open with the pure white of a winter wonderland serving as a backdrop to our fabulous tree. The fire in the fireplace is roaring.
