It's ALMOST Christmas!

NORAD is already tracking Santa. He's been to Russia and is now - 6:30 a.m. - leaving the Marshall Islands to go to Fiji.

Just to make sure that Waterville is ready, all of our rooftops have a few new inches of snow that began falling yesterday afternoon.

Although it was pretty ...............

............... it was also messy.

Out on Route 20, flashing lights: never a good sign.

The CVS parking lot was filled with shoppers who were probably hoping that their lists were getting shorter!

Jeannie heads home from Foodking ..........

........... and an industrious fellow shovels the sidewalk in front of the New York Pizzeria.



It's Garbage Day.

19 degrees F. / -7.2 C.

WKTV's forecast is reassuring: "If you are traveling across the northeast on Christmas Eve, the weather is expected to be nice and quiet. High pressure will bring sunshine and warmer temperatures to Central New York, with highs in the low 30s.

A storm system will develop and move into Central New York by Christmas Night and the morning of the 26th. Most of Christmas Day should feature generally quiet weather under considerable cloudiness. Precipitation is expected to initially start out as a mix of snow and ice after dark on Christmas Night, followed by a changeover to freezing rain and rain through Saturday morning. Cooler weather with snow showers heading into early next week."


Surely Nancy will be playing the bells in the tower of the Masonic Temple sometime this evening or tomorrow: if you're driving through the village, listen for them!


I couldn't decide which image to use for my own Christmas card, this year, so I used both - Main Street AND the Bandstand which, 'tho it's not totally complete, still looks wonderful!

Both images really are filled with cheer, and send my best wishes to all of you
for a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


This blog post carries with it not only many Christmas Greetings but also this message to the many young men and women who are serving our Country in faraway lands.

Thank You, and God Bless You.
