So, was it a White Christmas?

Well, I guess that's up to you.  It's not a black or white decision this year.  I think it all depends on how you look at it.

There was snow on the ground all of Christmas Eve, though the rain was working all day at melting it.  We woke up Christmas morning to a bunch of greenish grass and a pond in the field that backs up to our lot.  Christmas morning was not white!  It snowed later in the day, however, and by the time we were heading back from the Mueller side of the family Christmas celebration, there was snow on the ground - not a ton, but enough to make things look white.

I believe it was the day after Christmas that we got a significant amount of snow.  It was a beautiful, snowglobe-like snow, huge flakes, and light and fluffy.  I believe the bit we have left to this day might still be remnants of the time.

Here are a few pictures, but somehow they don't really capture it all.

I took a few videos, which capture it a little bit better, but I don't have time to figure out how to upload them just now.

So, what's your opinion?  Was this Christmas a "White Christmas"?  I'd love to hear your take on it.

I'd say it was white! You had snow on Christmas, even though you didn't wake up to it.
And it is hard to capture the beauty of snow in a picture; I think it's got something to do with texture, and most cameras not being able to really display that.
