12 Days of Christmas: 11th

On the eleventh day of Christmas,
My true love gave to me....

11 Skypers skyping

Ten Cords* a-keeping

Nine MD's lancing

8 knaves a-bilking

Seven Swamis sitting

Six beasts a-playing

Five olden beings

Four 'hauling' nerds

Three drenched men

Two fertile loves

...and a cartridge in a bare tree.


* Cord was manufactured between 1929-1932 and 1936-7, along with two other great classics, Auburn and Duesenberg.

Impressive snow totals up in them thar hills...24" in Robbinsville, 17" in West Asheville, 15" in East Marion, many 15-18" readings in Haywood County, 11" in Morganton, and some locations continued to pick up light snow overnight. More snow showers in the forecast today and Sunday, with the strong potential for another wintry system pulling in Christmas Eve. Oh yeah, and it's not even officially winter yet...

The flip side were a number of new daily rainfall records set towards the coastal areas. Wilmington got just under 2", Charleston over 3"...and in other southeastern cities they are looking at the wettest month on record, period. Crazy rain amounts, though a lot has fallen in drought stricken areas. No more.

My silly little adventure down the 12 Days of Christmas lane comes to an end tomorrow. I hope you've enjoyed tagging along...I certainly enjoy using my creative noggin just to make sure it still works from time to time.

Have a fun and safe weekend, all y'all!
