Mine won’t be, we don’t get snow in my part of Australia except for high up on the mountains… but I don’t live high up on the mountains, so a nice summer Christmas for me!

Yes, 18” on the ground already, which is a bit much for this time of the year usually.

12–20” in MN! Hunkering down by the fireplace with a good book and a hot adult beverage sounds like a perfect Christmas to me.

@Cotton101 I’ve lived in Austin for about 8 years now but originally lived in New Jersey. Strange to admit it, but I miss having snow, for a variety of reasons (driving in it not being one of them).

I would be pleased as punch to get at least the normal 1/8” to ¼” of snow. Actually, that’s probably more than the snowfall here. Make it 1/16” of an inch.

Hold the ice storms.

Why yes. I’m in Hawaii. So many tourist down here for the holidays.

At the beginning of the week we had plenty of snow but it has died off and the weather is getting milder so the chances aren’t so high now. I live in south/west England.

Very very snowy, and deep. Its good. I use a small sled for my son when we walk down town. Expect it to stay for a while. It just started snowing again.

Cotton101's avatar

@mrentropy oh, got that right..those icestorm are a real bitch…

Hey Austin, is a great place to live. Worked down there years ago for about a month. Was an insurance adjuster for State Farm and worked a hail storm there…love it..been a country boy that lived a sheltered life, had to visit Hippy Hollow…LOLL..oh my gosh, what a trip…

SirGoofy's avatar

Yep! Had us a blizzard last night. Dang. @mrentropy Hey Austin, it’s headed your way…break out the snow shovel….if you can find it.

mrentropy's avatar

@SirGoofy Good to know, but I’ll believe it when I see it ;)

Here in Stirlingshire (Scotland) it’s all covered in Snow but according to the UK MEt Office, it wont be a white christmas because they say:

the definition of an official white Christmas used most widely, notably by those placing and taking bets, is for a single snow flake (perhaps amongst a shower of rain and snow mixed) to be observed falling in the 24 hours of 25 December.
Forest snowscape
The last official white Christmas was in 2004, when snow was widespread across Northen Ireland, Scotland, parts of Wales, the Midlands, north-east and far south-west England.

But whatever the official definition it’ll be a whit one here unless it all melts overnight.! lol

well right now its sleeting and the snow should be moving in soon. YAY! this will be the first time ive ever seen snow on Christmas. and im 21. soooo. thats a big deal.

juicyful's avatar

For the first time in years it’s white over where i live in the UK. I don’t ever remember having snow fall on Christmas day, but this year it could do :D

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

Right now there are 14 inches of snow, and its 18F out. I think it’s safe to say yes.

SuperMouse's avatar

We will definitely be having a white Christmas where I live. There are over two feet one the ground with a big ol storm expected today.

Cotton101's avatar

A blonde got lost in her car in a snow storm. She remembered what her dad had once told her. “If you ever get stuck in a snow storm, wait for a snow plow and follow it”.Pretty soon a snow plow came by, and she started to follow it. She followed the plow for about forty-five minutes.Finally the driver of the truck got out and asked her what she was doing.She explained that her dad had told her if she ever got stuck in the snow, to follow a plow.The driver nodded and said, “Well, I’m done with Wal-Mart; now you can follow me over to K-Mart.”

Yes, I will have a white Christmas in Michigan, USA!
Merry Christmas everyone!

Jude's avatar

Sadly, no. :(

aprilsimnel's avatar

Yeah, we got a foot in a day last week.

StupidGirl's avatar

A patched white one.

ChocolateReigns's avatar

Yup! It’s going to be snowing on and off from now until Saturday. When all is said and done, we could have 16–22 inches way up here in MN. And we already had about 6 inches on the ground. Look out beloooooow!

casheroo's avatar

The ground is covered in snow, and it’s the perfect kind for snowballs and snowmen!

Roby's avatar

Thank all of you for answering…It’s 54 right now in Decatur Tennessee…Rain tomorrow…no snow.

smartfart11's avatar

Definitely a white Christmas here in Nebraska. We already have over a foot of snow, and more is coming down today. It’s very slick.:(

CMaz's avatar

A White Sand Christmas.

Ghost_in_the_system's avatar

The low is suppose to be 49 degees tonight. So, A white Christmas isn’t coming. With the high at 72 degrees tomorrow, shorts on Christmas, again.

Cotton101's avatar

pearls's avatar

@Cotton101 I thought it was pretty funny myself.

Zackyy's avatar

It won’t be snowing, but there will be snow on the ground.

mrentropy's avatar

I’m a bit surprised. It’s in the high 30’s and it’s snowing.
Or should I say, “snowing.”
It won’t stick, though.

YARNLADY's avatar

Nope, I can see it on the top of the Sierras, and that is good enough for me.
