    Thumbs up Who's having a white Christmas?

    If you are, I'm jealous!

    It's currently 61° here in California, with an expected high of 67. If I wanted warm weather for Christmas, I would have gone to Hawaii!

    No fog this morning, not a cloud in the sky.

    If you are having a white Christmas, please share so I can live vicariously through you!

    Please post pictures if you have any.

    Merry Christmas!

    81 degrees and just beautiful today in SoCal. Low is supposed to be in the 40's tonight so maybe we can put a fire on tonight so it will feel "Christmasy".

    We are on our 12th or more Spare the Air Day, so we aren't "allowed" to have fires up here.

    I'm in North Ohio for Christmas and we had flurries today!! Not a whole lot, but any sort of white stuff makes me happy. My car has a snow 'stache.

    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.

    Yes! Christmas day in Maine:
    20 F high, bright blue skies, (frozen) snow on the ground.
    Calling for 30-ish F tomorrow and light rain/snow. Hopefully snow.

    We missed it by one day.
    All was still white yesterday, but melting very fast and coming off roofs like mad.
    Today only some snow drifts left, in between bare ground.

    High of 40F both days, still breaking ice in the mornings for the stock.

    We have an absolutely beautiful day here today, no complaints.

    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!

    Oh I would gladly give you ALL of our snow. You can have it, every last little icicle.

    We have about 2-3 feet of it and in some places the snow drifts are 7 feet high.

    ^ Yikes! Either you have a very low fence or a very high drift.

    Yes! A white Christmas! As in my face was all white after slathering it with sunscreen to go ride in the 80 degree sunshine.

    Fly spray on Christmas--I love it.
    A helmet saved my life.

    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.

    Mostly brown here in Colorado Springs. There is still snow in the shade in a few spots, and Pike's Peak is beautiful, but the lower elevations are clear. Temps have been 40-50s.
