A smaller Christmas, Day 20

Ah, yes. Where were we? Day 20.

On Thursday, we were socked by a blizzard. We got 10 inches of wet, heavy snow. So I ran the snowblower and shoveled.

The storm was all but over when I got home at midnight. It was by then, save for the sound of the plows, a silent night.

“Silent Night,” the Staple Singers,” from “The 25 Days of Christmas,” 1962. Re-released on CD, 2007.

The familiar Christmas hymn done as a slow Delta blues number. Listen for the reverb from Pops Staples’ guitar and some  sweet Hammond organ.
