The weather isn't very Christmasy, but as they say, if you don't like the weather just wait ten minutes. First it was the rain. Then freezing rain and rain mixed with snow. And then the snow began, which turned back to rain and to plus 12 and sun. Then freezing rain again. But at this time of year no one notices the slippery roads when there are Christmas two for one sales (not to be confused with the 'two four' sale at the liquor store). Could it be anymore Maritime than that?
