Julia, I can sympathize with you. I grew up in Spokane and remember lots of snow shoveling and walking to school on tops of snowbanks created by the plows. The only thing we have to worry about in Seattle right now is how many dry days will there be. Our five day forecast calls for highs 42-46, lows 34-38, and showers every day.
Well I tried to send you a beautiful picture of the Mission Inn, in Riverside, CA all lit up for Christmas but I don't see it now. I am not sure what happened. But, thank you for the beautiful Christmas greeting. Merry Christmas to you as well. Thanks for making me feel welcome my first few days on TBD.
