A White Christmas (Eve)

 25-December-2021
     Early on Friday-24-December the Bogota area received a Christmas Eve dusting of snow.  The flurries was enough to frost lawns and roof tops along with some decorations on display. With the raise in temperature and salting by the Bogota Department of Public Works the streets were clear to do last minute errands. This also allowed Santa to make his evening ride around Bogota  to see all the children before they were to snuggle warm in their beds.
