I REALLY want it to snow on Christmas!!!! I have not had a white Christmas coming from Southern CA and all! I did live in Raleigh last year and we did have a big snow storm which was great, but I really would like white everywhere on Christmas when I wake (plus my daughter will be in CA with her dad and I will be alone...I think I deserve a little bit of a gift from the skies!
By the way...is there actually a way to cast my vote, I cant figure it out

Or maybe I just need a few more layers of fat to keep me warm..... Quick bring on the leftovers!
Oh Dear Normie!! You may have my leftovers and my extra layers!!!

Pretty rare to get snow here before January. I'd vote for later rather than sooner. Seems it only snows heavily, if it does, in February. We did have a pretty big snowstorm in March one year.

I don't count any snowfall before it actually happens around here, but it is looking pretty good.

It does sound like Dec 5th may be the date.

How much snow are they predicting?

To quote the weatherman on Channel 7: "More than a dusting but less than a blanket." I'm guessing that means 1/2 inch to an inch.
