Sharing is caring!

The weekend had a mix of all types of weather for us, from sun, to rain, to snow.  Today’s weather will be cloudy with a high near 29 and a low around 21. Breezy, with a west wind 17 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 34 mph.

Christmas Day will have a chance of light snow, mainly between noon and 2pm. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, with a high near 31 and a low around 26.

Well, Christmas Eve has finally arrived. I, along with all kids (you know who you are), am really getting excited for the visit from the big guy and all the presents he (hopefully) brings. That must be why the Walmart in Oakland was crazy-busy yesterday afternoon, with the parking lot almost full and the store the most crowded I have seen it. I was in Morgantown Saturday and our Walmart seemed much busier. Just my observation.

Apparently, Santa is running ahead of schedule, as he and his helpers will be making a stop at Taylor-Made Deep Creek Lake Vacations today from 10:00 am – Noon.  They will have cookies and hot chocolate and opportunities for photos with Santa. Thanks Santa… and Taylor-Made!

Just a heads-up here:  If you are planning on dining out Christmas Eve, note that a number of local establishments are closing early (or closed completely).  A number appear to be closing at 6:00 pm or earlier, so please plan in advance.  You can check our Area Dining Guide for phone numbers and website links.

Crossroads Church has announced that they will be hosting a Jingle Mingle Social Hour at 4:00 pm this afternoon followed by a candlelight service at 5:00 pm.  NOTE: Both events are at the Garrett County Fairgrounds in McHenry.

Here’s a link to the State of Maryland Board of Public Works agenda for their January 2nd meeting in Annapolis.  While state-wide in scope, these meetings and their topics definitely impact us here in Garrett County.

Speaking of the state, all citizens are invited to participate in one of two upcoming online listening sessions for the new state development plan, A Better Maryland.  The online sessions are being held Thursday, January 10, at 1:00 p.m. and at 6:30 p.m.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… 🎶🎶
