    Dreaming of a white Christmas?

    NOAA published the following map of the chances of having snow on Christmas in the US.

    Sure would be nice, where I live the whole area is in the 60-75% range so at least there's a chance.

    Merry Christmas, hope it's a white one.

    I'd be surprised if there was snow in my area, considering that it's the southern hemisphere summer. This, however, doesn't stop the local radio stations playing the "golden oldies" that mention snow.....

    Is it bad that I thought that this thread was going to be racist?

    Anyway in Australia we don't do snow, it's the middle of summer!

    I live in the northwest most part of Chicagoland, and we've still yet to get measurable snow.

    In fact, a few days ago marked the record for the greatest number of days between snowfalls.

    Aside from the white christmas thing, this sucks... we need a good snow pack this winter to help groundwater recharge from this past summer's horrible drought

    Am I the only one that's singing the song in my head right now?

    Its been raining all day here and the inch of snow we had is gone . Not looking good so far. I'm glad I don't own a snowmobile.

    People who hanker for snow almost invariably don't come from the lands of ice and snow. As a born and raised prairie-boy Canadian, I'm telling you that it gets real old, real quick. <grumble> Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye did their White Christmas shtick in a comfy-warm studio using mashed potato flakes. Had they done all of that singing and prancing about where I live, they would have quickly lost their privates to frostbite. <grumble, grumble>

    Merry <grumble> Christmas

    I can almost hear a Dutch version of the song playing in my head, from an LP (yes, vinyl!) that my Dad used to play in my younger days.

    No snow here in the tropics. And the lowest the temperature gets in this time of the year where I live is around 15 C at midnight.

    Here in this part of Honduras it's about 20c during the day. I much prefer that.
