LET IT SNOW!
LET IT SNOW!
It’s a picture straight out of Irving Berlin’s holiday favorite, “White Christmas”. The picturesque mountains and evergreens that surround our own Lake Stevens is a sight to behold.
School children have been given an extended holiday vacation from school and many are spending their time out in the fluffy, white snow making snowmen and women and sledding to their hearts content.
Some of the braver kids have even made ramps and jumps and the true adrenaline junkies are soaring down Chapel Hill Road, just below the “road closed” sign and towards the frigid lake below, laughing all the way.
With temperatures lower than they have been in almost two decades and not a clear sign of when they will start moving up the thermometer, worries of freezing pipes, auto accidents and employee absenteeism are on the rise, not to mention the effect all of this snow and freezing temps will have on an already struggling economy during the last week of the big holiday shopping rush.
Right now, it’s a wait and see game on whether or not the snow will actually fall tomorrow, but it looks like there will still be blankets of white on the ground for Christmas.
Just as Berlin hoped for in his 1940 song, the treetops will be glistening for at least a little while longer.
