Snow, Right Here In Christmas City!

Monocacy Creek

That's a shot I took today, while walking from Anne's house over to Main Street to meet her at Wired Cafe. The Monocacy (and the original Moravian settlement, aka the "Colonial Industrial Area") divides her neighborhood from that part of town. It was a beautiful snowy day, so I brought the camera along...

Later, I walked over to Southside for an Eskandalo haircut, but the snow had turned to rain and that wasn't so beautiful. Still, the ground is now white and it definitely that "Christmas In Merrie Olde England" look that Bethlehem can get.

I can't stand this. It's PAINFULLY cold outside. I've gotten so used to mild winters that I thought they'd continue. Is it even officially winter yet? This is brutal!

We've been providing food, blankets and shelter (crate and porch) to three ferals who made their way to our property quite a while ago (one's been here for two-plus years); and, despite what we provide them, I can't understand how they survive in this frigid weather. They refuse to be lured into our garage, where we'd be able to use a heater to keep them warm. Homeless people and homeless animals weigh heavy on my heart and mind......especially when temps. dip this low.

That aside, wishing you a very merry Christmas!!!!
