We had intermittent light snow showers most of the day Wednesday, and this seems to be what we can expect today. Our high temperatures will remain in the 30s through this week and there are no significant weather systems knocking on our door at this time. I guess that’s a good thing. I’m having a hard time getting motivated to get out and do my Christmas shopping. My biggest problem is that I hate crowds and long lines. I’m finding that going out in the early evening is a good time but then it gets dark so early. My night vision isn’t what it used to be.
