Let It Snow!

“There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the still ecstasy
of nature, wherein every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed, every intricacy of twig, is clad with radiance.”

- William Sharp (pseudonym of Fiona MacLeod) 
(12 Sept 1855 - 12 Dec 1905)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 
 
   Today's Newsletter theme seems to be a natural today, with so many places getting sooo much snow.

   Here in Fayetteville, it was quite warm, reaching 72 degrees, but as of 11:00 AM this morning the Raleigh triangle at least broke an all-time record for the wettest year in recorded history! I think Fayetteville followed suit, plus the rain will continue all weekend!

BONUS - Let It Snow! - Dean Martin


From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let_It_Snow!_Let_It_Snow!_Let_It_Snow!:

"Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!", also known as "Let It Snow", is a song written by lyricist Sammy Cahn and composer Jule Styne in July 1945. It was written in Hollywood, California during a heat wave as Cahn and Styne imagined cooler conditions.[1] Although the song's lyrics make no mention of Christmas, it is played on radio stations during the Christmas season and is often covered by various artists on Christmas-themed albums...

Let It Snow!

Words by Sammy Cahn (18 June 1913 – 15 Jan 1993)

Music by Jule Styne (31 Dec 1905 - 20 Sept 1994), 1945

"The wonderful Christmas song Let It Snow was created by lyricist Sammy Cahn and the composer Jule Styne in 1945.
The words and lyrics of Let It Snow reflect the feeling of warmth and security associated with Christmas and also brings in the more modern customs of popping corn!
The song Let It Snow was reprised in recent years when used in the Bruce Willis film Die Hard which started with the film's hero travelling to meet his family at Christmas."



Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It doesn't show signs of stopping,
And I've bought some corn for popping,
The lights are turned way down low,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight,
How I'll hate going out in the storm!
But if you'll really hold me tight,
All the way home I'll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we're still good-bying,
But as long as you love me so,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
