Travelers Rest and Greenville and many other places IN SC and other states did get snow on Christmas night. Looks like 2-3 inches at our house. The newspapers tell of people very excited that they and their children have their first ever white Christmas. Obviously I took white Christmas for granted when I lived in MN. Who knew it was such a rare experience?
Once again we spent a wonderful Christmas with friends Lynn and Bob in Charleston, 4 hours from our house. For Christmas Eve I brought Swedish meatballs and Swedish fruit soup and they added sweet and sour red cabbage and herring. Then off to Christmas Eve service and heard them sing in the choir. My favorite part is when we all go outside in the dark with our candle and sing Silent Night.
On Christmas morning they made a delicious breakfast for us and we opened presents. Bob and I helped set the table and do other tasks to prepare for a delicious dinner for 10. Bob Brennan planned the menu and did most of the cooking. We had beef tenderloin, salad, potatoes, carrots, green beans, rolls, a cheese course before the dessert and then a delicious red velvet chocolate souffle. Add in a generous supply of wine and you can be sure a good time was had by all.
Coming back from Charleston this morning it rained for the first hour, snowed for two hours (there was a ground cover of snow for about 100 miles) and then the last hour was sunny. It is snowing in Charleston as I write this. Roads were good but we were a little concerned because the temperature was 32-33 and the precipitation could be rain, ice or snow on the road. Seems like it just melted right away. Glad we are home safe. Kitties seem happy to see us.
I do have to add I picked up a nasty head cold that showed up on Christmas Eve day so I look a little like Rudolph. Hope it doesn’t last too long or get any worse.
Hope your holiday was as good as mine.
