This weekend, Mother Nature has taken over the roll of the Grinch that Stole Christmas.

City of Temple has announced that the Bend of the River Christmas, scheduled for Saturday, December 16th, has been cancelled due to expected bad weather.

No one expects Mother Nature to be the bad man, but that what it seems like is happening this holiday season.

Plus, it looks like Christmas Week could be pretty bad as well with an Arctic Cold front expected to reach all the way down to us.
