Snow, snow, snow. It’s December and it’s snowing on this blog. For this month only. Move your mouse around this blog and the direction of the snow moves with it. I’m such a kid. I love to play with snow, even if it’s virtual.
But that’s not all. The meteorologists are predicting snow this weekend in the foothill around my beloved Puget Sound in Washington State, U.S.A.. If it happens, it will be the first real snowfall in three years.
Considering snow made me think of two things. Country music legend from Canada, Hank Snow and Robert Service’s poem, Spell of the Yukon. And wouldn’t you know, Hank Snow did a rendition of Spell of the Yukon.
While I search for my boots, mittens, and scarf so I can make a snow angel (fingers crossed), enjoy this little performance from the words of the Bard of the North (Robert Service, not Hank Snow. Snow was the Singing Ranger).
For extra credit, since Hank Snow spent the last years of his life in Tennessee, here he is performing Robert Service’s, Cremation of Sam McGhee—who was from, you guessed it, Tennessee.
Enjoy your weekend. May it be merry wherever you are.
