Bob and I celebrated Christmas with my brother, Jim, and his family at their house on Christmas Day. It’s a little more than a 2-hour drive to Jim’s house. The weather forecast for Christmas Day was not good. Here, in Warren PA, there was a winter weather advisory for freezing rain until 5:00 PM. Jim lives near Kittanning PA, where there was also a winter weather advisory in effect. The winter weather advisory in Kittanning, though, expired at noon. We left our house late morning, hoping to avoid the wintry weather. We were fortunate not to run into any freezing rain either en route Jim’s house or on our way back home in the evening.

We enjoyed good food and the wonderful company of family and friends both days. Time spent with family and friends during the holidays is definitely time well spent. Bob and I hope all of our family members and friends, near and far, enjoyed Christmas as much as we did.
