Christmas Present & Past

27 Dec

Very late on Christmas night, snow fell as far south as Augusta, Georgia. When I awoke on the 26th, the ground and trees were covered in a light dusting of snow. This has never happened in my lifetime.

Later in the day (to capture the historic moment) I took a picture of my house, still decorated for Christmas, with the snow on the ground. Looking at it, I wondered how many times my (almost) 90-year-old home has seen snow in December. And then, how many families have celebrated the joys of the season in that home.

So, I’m going to do some research on the house to see what I can find out. I just hope I don’t find out anything too spooky about the place. I have enough trouble “resting easy” as it is.

    I found out it has not snowed on Christmas Day since 1892!

    Mandi: When I look at some of my "old" furniture I wonder the same thing…who it belonged to, how a certain "stain" got on a marble top, etc. I hope you can find some interesting info and pics of your beautiful grand old house.

    It was very pretty. On the other hand, Georgia drivers. My mother almost demanded that I stay at her house Xmas night for fear of my driving from Marietta to Little 5 Points.

    Georgia got snow but we didn't?! Geez, Michigan. You suck.I guess I can't be too put out, though. We'll be having it for the next couple of months. -__-;;I've always kind of wondered about my house, too. It's not old or grand, but still. What may have happened here that might be ignored by a dull appearance? Hope you find something interesting about your house.Juniperhttp://wbah.blogspot.com/
