Saturday morning, Colin and Ren came over about 10:30am and we all went out to get a Christmas tree; they had already gotten theirs. We got it from a local source so didn't take long to get back to the house. Sue had fixed a corn chowder for lunch, so we all had a really nice visit after getting the tree set up in its stand.
It's been really cold lately, down around 12F, and we're supposed to get hit with a major snow storm late evening. The projection is for 5 to 8 inches, though could go to a foot.
After Colin and Ren left, I brought a couple of loads of wood in for the fire place so I wouldn't have to trudge out to the garage in a storm. I lit the fire around 4:30, and Sue and I got into some late afternoon backgammon, had a simple dinner, and watched the 1970 Jack Nicholson movie, Five Easy Pieces.
It started snowing lightly later in the evening, but didn't really start to come down until we had gone to bed.
