It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Well, it would be looking a lot like Christmas, but since video didn't cooperate when I originally wanted to post it, I missed the deadline for the big day. So let's just pretend this is a gift that came late in the mail. Woo Hoo! Christmas again! What fun.

This scenery thrills me to the core. I'm never happier than when I'm seeing snow! And since I saw lots of it during our last run, I'd like to show you what Christmas looks like from the windshield of a big rig as Eddie drives us through the
Lassen Volcanic National Park in Northern California.

We were listening to the "all Christmas, all the time" music on XM Radio which is why you can hear Johnny Mathis in the background. And if you listen closely, you can even hear the "whine" of the engine.

Yes, apparently Swiss bank accounts are hard to access - even for the account holder!!
Also, if you should think otherwise: Swiss bank accounts do not by default have a starting balance of several millions :(

Well, yeahh... we do have snow ... at least on the mountains but here in the city it's just cold and grey. AND it's just not the same, you know: the vast distances in CA and all the tall trees make the snow experience quite different. But yeah, I guess Swiss snow with its Alps, Swiss cheese, fondue, etc. have other qualities :)

All the best for this excitingly fresh New Year to you too!

Love the video. I grew up in Redding, CA not far from where you took this gorgeous video.

I was actually home over Christmas but we had no snow in Redding and I felt no need to go find it. It was darn cold for me while in N. California. I was happy to get back to sunny Chandler, AZ to thaw out a bit.
