Snow on the ground, foot and a half or so, getting measureable snow the next 4-5 days slim but not needed for a white Christmas.

I'll never forget going to my sisters in the UP for Christmas one year, not a drop of snow, drove home to Illinois had to shovel 6-8" to get to my front door! What a hoot and highly unusual!

If anyone's interested this site gives white christmas probability:

Home :: Northeast Regional Climate Center

I'm surprised NYC isn't abut zero. Unless the forecasts drastically change, it's hard imagine snow on Christmas. It's sunny and dry and no snow on the ground.

Our Christmas didn't start white, but it sure ended white. I've got a foot of snow right now and probably will get 3-5 more inches before it stops!

In Germany, Hamburg experiencing the first white Christmas ever (first WINTER Christmas ever ) and the romance is fast wering off as the prospect of spending another freezing night in Amsterdam to catch my connecting flight looms...

We have not had one (white Christmas) since 2002... we had one this year!

couple of pics from northeast Tennessee on Christmas...

front lawn (some of these were on the road, some on my lawn and some on my uncles front lawn)

We picked up about 2 more inches on Sunday, so we have more than these pics depict... we now have about 3.8 inches as of Sunday night.
Also I have relatives in other areas in the southeast... my uncle in Atlanta GA received 2 inches of snow on Christmas, my cousin in Columbia SC didnt get it until late that night and my aunt/uncle in Raleigh got about 8 inches of snow that started late Christmas night.... even Columbus GA had snow, as did Myrtle Beach, and I think even Savannah GA reported snow! WOW! Now we have the blizzard in the northeast.

Buxton was certainly white over Christmas, but from the bookie's point of view it wasn't if no snow flakes fell from the sky. Never did make sense to me that, but there we are. If there's snow on the ground, it's clearly "white".
