Okay, okay...all you people in the Northwest US who are complaining about the snow and cold, it's all my fault. You see, I have broken with all traditions and after 54 Christmases in New York City I decided to go and visit my sister in Portland, OR for the holidays. And since I am from Maine, where we nearly always have a White Christmas, I wished to make my visit extra special by arranging with Mother Nature to have a little of the white stuff on the ground for my arrival on tomorrow, Tuesday.
So, it is all my fault and I apologize. I promise that I will take all of the white stuff with me when I leave, but that will not be until December 30th.
Sorry. Merry Christmas.
