Dreaming of 50 on Christmas

It’s going to feel like Miami on Christmas … well, not really.

‘Twas the Friday before Christmas, in Pottsville so fair, The clouds gathered above, with a chill in the air.

Today, the clouds, mostly hidden from sight, Would reach a high near 37, with calm winds just right. By afternoon, a southeast breeze, soft and mild, Would sweep through the town, gentle as a child.

As Friday night fell, the clouds lingered still, With a low around 28, a slight winter chill. The southeast wind, around 5 mph it’s true, Would become a calm whisper as the evening grew.

Come Saturday, the skies, a cloudy gray dome, With a high near 41, as calm winds roamed. From southeast, they’d come, 5 to 7 mph to start, In the morning’s first light, a gentle work of art.

Sunday’s dawn, with a slight chance of showers, Before 1 pm struck on the town’s quiet hours. Mostly cloudy skies, with a high near 45, A 20% chance of rain, the day would survive.

As Sunday night fell, the clouds stayed in sight, With a low around 36, under the moonlight.

Then Christmas Day came, with joy and cheer, Mostly cloudy skies, but the spirit was clear. A high near 48, a festive day’s start, As Christmas warmth filled every heart.

Monday night followed, the festivities done, Mostly cloudy skies, with a low around 38, no sun.
