2008-12-23 10:33:44.000 – Ryan Knapp,  Staff Meteorologist

Last year, I did a parody on the poem “Twas the Night Before Christmas” putting an obs spin on how the story goes. This year, I am putting a twist on the song “The 12 Days of Christmas”. If you don’t want to take the time to read it in order like the song goes, just scroll to the bottom for “day 12” to get a summary. I hope y’all like it. And since we are heading down today, a day earlier than normal due to the Christmas holidays, this crew would like to wish you a:MERRY CHRISTMAS and JOYFUL HOLIDAYS!
