I'm Dreaming of a Mele Kalikimaka

Bing Crosby may have made "White Christmas" a holiday favorite, but he had another Christmas tune he sang with The Andrews Sisters that sounds a lot more enticing after three feet of snowfall.
Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say on a bright Hawaiian Christmas Day
That's the island greeting that we send to you from the land where palm trees sway
Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii's way to say Merry Christmas to you

The great Holiday Blizzard of '06 has moved out, leaving mounds of white snow everywhere. It actually is very pretty seeing the snow on the Colorado blue spruce trees and all over the pastures here. After the snowfall ceased Thursday afternoon, the digging out began. Our townhouse complex had a crew working from early Thursday before the snow stopped, until about 1:30 am to get our driveways and streets cleared enough to leave. Now we have a single lane plowed out and piles of snow 6 feet tall all along the road.

It is my hope that we have no more actual blizzards to blog about this winter. We now return you to our regular programming.
