9:30 am – not much rain, less than 1/4 inch. Catching up on some reports, but road seems to be clear. Hoping it clears up so a couple friends can come up for a visit today. Otherwise, I bought WAY too much food and booze (well, is there really such a thing as too much booze on hand during the holiday season?)

6:30 am – definitely not clear. It is raining. I forgot to empty the rain gauge, too, darn. Oh well, I’ll just subtract the 2.25 we just got.

Also, updated forecast has snow on Christmas Day down to 3000. That’s me! Maybe I WILL have a white Christmas, after all.
