According to one of the weathermen on TV, the definition of a White Christmas is that there is a minimum of 1-inch of snow on the ground. So, unless we have a MAJOR Heat Wave, we are having a White Christmas this year!
Well, the Morning After the Big Significant Snow Event of 2009 – they are actually calling it the December Blizzard of 2009 – started with Bright Sunshine! Temps are still cold – at noon, it is about 33 on the deck, and don’t think it is going to warm up much. But with the shoveling we’ve done and the sunshining, there is a bit of clearing going on.
We will need some serious warm weather to melt this accumulation. The weather people don’t want to talk about it, but it looks like we will get some precip for Christmas Eve & Christmas Day — they won’t commit to what kind or how much.
