The 9:00 PM Weather Channel weather for Oxford, ME (the nearest city, using that term loosely, for my present location) is 40 degrees and partly cloudy. The forecast for Christmas day is mostly sunny and 44 degrees. The forecast for Christmas week is sun, rain, temperatures in the 40s. It is December. I’m in New England, in Maine. If I wanted sunshine on Christmas I’d live in California. The lake should be iced-in, snow should blanket the ground, the temperature should be in the low 20s and falling, there a storm forming over the Great Lakes should be aimed at the heart of New England.
This weather is dispiriting. If I wanted rain on Christmas I’d live in Seattle.
