We had some surprise pretty, fluffy stuff on Monday but it pretty much all melted yesterday. Today is 40 and bright sunny.
I've never had a white Christmas. I grew up in coastal SC where it never snows. The one Christmas it snowed in NC, I was here in CO on vacation and it was 50*. Last year we had a huge snowstorm here for Christmas but I was with my dad in Phoenix visiting family. I think I'm destined to never see a white Christmas!

We are looking to get little flurries later this afternoon, but what is on the ground is pretty sad, snow rarely sticks here, so any photo you got from me today wouldn't be what you are looking for. It is freakin' cold though, right around 26 degrees.
We have had really crazy weather this month in New York. It got very cold, very early. Then it was fairly normal for a bit. Then cold again, with snow. Then it was around 60 over the weekend in many parts of the state, and close to 70 in New York City! All the snow melted, of course. At the same time, there was a huge ice storm just an hour or so north of my hometown. Then the temperature dropped like a stone within 24 hours, and it was zero this morning. And now the forecast says it will be back up around 50 this weekend. Wild and wacky weather.
We did have a dusting or more the past two nights, so we did squeak into a white Christmas, but it was a close call. I know I have seen a green Christmas in New York, but maybe only once.
Here in Alabama I'm not sure they ever had a real white Christmas here, but today if you got up early, it was in the mid-20's, and there was frost on everything, so I think that's as close as we'll get.
After the ice storm then above-freezing temps that we had on Sunday taking away all of our snow, I though we'd be having a green Christmas. Not so. We got snow Monday, yesterday, and this morning. Not a lot but enough to give us a white Christmas. The temps have taken a nosedive, though!
We had a white Christmas, and a cold one. Some friends and I went out hiking this afternoon. It was a great day to be outside, enjoying the fresh air and nature. If you look at this picture, very closely, you will see the chickadee perched on my hand, taking sunflower seeds. Now, that's a Christmas gift worth getting. http://pic100.picturetrail.com/VOL72.../408443651.jpg
