What are your thoughts about a green Christmas? And how about you join me in wishing the collective the best for the New Year?

Asked by Adirondackwannabe (33346 points ) December 23rd, 2011

Last year we were buried in snow. This year nothing. It doesn’t feel nearly as festive. If you want weather service info, last year Syracuse had 72.7 inches of snow by this time, this year, 1.7 inches. What gives? What will Santa land on when he hits the trail?

With all due respect, @Adirondackwannabe , SHUTUP SHUTUP SHUTUP! I’ll be traveling, festive is not about snow, and I would much rather have a season that is a little quieter on the weather front!!!

Hey! No fair! You edited! Now I just look pissy!

Happiest of New Years to all the Jellies, whether you celebrate the New Year on January 1st or not…

I didn’t edit. Really. You are the last jelly I would call pissy.

You didn’t? Really? Wow, I am a dope. Sorry.

@JilltheTooth I also know you are far from a dope. Merry Christmas. :)

It is 50 degrees outside right now—very unseasonal. But I am OK with it.

Happy holidays and a peaceful and prosperous New Year’s to you and all my fellow Flutherites.

Looks to be as green as a can of Mountain Dew this year. But there is only a 10% of a White Christmas where I live.

Lived just north of Syracuse for the first 18 years of my life, where 2 feet of snow in 2 days is commonplace.

Green Christmas is very common and it’s cheery anyhow. And a very happy new year to all of us! We need it.

Same weather situation in Nashville.

No snow, but plenty of sunshine and in the 60s.

I am breaking out the suntan lotion.

I feel like I am having Christmas in Hawaii. ALOHA CHRISTMAS…........

I have to keep listening to the song Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

This is a constant reminder for me that it is Christmas.

Northern California has had one of the driest Decembers ever. We have having lows in the 20’s here where I am in the Sierra Nevada foothills and rocketing up to 60–62 in the afternoons.
Crazy!
I had to break a layer of ice on the goose pools this morning with a rake handle, and now at 12:11 it is balmy, sunny, a few high clouds and breezy.
In another hour or so I’ll have the windows open for a few hours.

“They” say that we should be seeing some changes in the New Year and reach normal or above by late season. ” Normal” being about 15–20+ feet of snow pack in the higher mountains.

A sunshiney Christmas for us!

Happy Holidays jelly pals! :-)

A Green Christmas would be lovely. Where I live though, it’s a consistently washed out brown Christmas. We have to drive to see any green tress or snow. :(

We have a dusting of snow that will melt tomorrow. It does not feel like Christmas. Oh well. At least our heating bill is lower this year.

mattbrowne's avatar

Same in Germany. 50 F. I love the snow, but not every year. Having it occasionally makes it more special. Last year was very special.

wilma's avatar

We got a dusting last night, I would like a bit more tonight too, but I’ll take clear roads for the travelers as a trade off.

AnonymousWoman's avatar

I would like to have a white Christmas… and I think I may just get my wish. :)

I wish you all all the best in 2012! ^_^

I made my own fog tonight, freezing cold and clear with starry skies.
Went out to my hot tub a bit ago after the gang went home and basked in my own bank of fog, hot off the jets.

If I can’t have a white Christmas I’ll have a foggy one.

Merry Christmas! :-)
