Does it bother anyone that it is in the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s in the United States in December? It rained today in the middle of december…that kind of bothered me…
Christina and I were planning on skiing while we were in NH for the kickoff, and we can’t do that without any snow!!!
I LOVE the snow!!! and we have NONE!..its barely even snowed at all (just a couple times for an hour if that, nothing stuck)
But i heard on the news that last year here in central indiana we had about 5.5 in of snow already…and the latest it’s ever been before we’ve gotten any snow was the 21st of december…
So me is still hoping for a white christmas
I’m wearing shorts in December. Wasupwidat?!
Here in Delaware (yes!! you know you love it!), we have much the same situation. Its been warm! Today it was miserable - drizzled and misted with a foreboding fog hanging around. Bah! I want snow! One good thing I heard though…On the news, the weather reporter said that in looking at previous years, when it is relatively warm in December, the snow in January and the following months is much greater than the average!! Its just crazy predictions from almanacs, but hey- it’d be cool!
That happens in RI too. And no, I won’t be wearing shorts in the snow.

It always rains here in California during the winter. We never get any snow.
It has only “snowed” one day here since I started living here (about 10 years ago), and even then it didnt stick.
On December 6th the temp reached 74 degrees… On December 8th we had 4" of snow… does anyone else think this is screwed up???
The reason the weather here is so screwed up is because our dear USA is caught in the wonderful thing known as the jet stream. this is why England and parts of Alaska tend to have mild winters despite being further north than the continental US
Hrm… All this talk of snow and I went swimming in my backyard today :D. Non heated pool, just a regular in ground pool. This is my first winter in Florida so we’ll see if I’m in the pool on Christmas Morning. WOO! Wouldn’t that be great! I must admit that buying a christmas tree wearing shorts and a tank top is kinda weird. I’m used to bunding up in tons of layers and picking a tree from a farm.

Nothing remains quite the same…”
I got to see snow when I was up in Rochester. It was the first snow fall I saw this season, and I have to admit, even though I’m not too keen on the cold, I love snow. And seeing it makes me wish we had some around here. I want a white Christmas!
I was so loving that 70+ degree day Tom
Ok, ok… so I’m a southern born chick that really doesn’t belong up north I love being warm, and I absoultly HATE the snow… hate driving in it, hate walking in it, I’m horrible at all winter sports, so I can’t even enjoy it that way :rolleyes: I like it to snow Christmas Eve, and then be melted by the 26th - and have the temps go back into the 60s and 70s
Yeah… I’m moving south ASAP
yeah!! I’m waiting for the big rainstorms and flashes of lighting and rolling thunder…
Well, I take that back, we don’t really have lightning storms in CA, but wouldn’t it be cool?
We don’t get any snow here in the “Bay Area”, but we sure do up in the mountains. There’s been some snow the past couple of weeks, but I haven’t been skiing yet
I hate thunderstorms. They scare me soooo much. ::shudders::
I have to admit too…I like the 70 degree weather, but it’s December, so it’s just not right. I don’t know. I like snow, well, to look at and play in. I don’t like driving in it. But, I don’t like the cold. That may be a conflict.
Don’t forget about snowforts. Oh, and Lora, you might want to get a bit used to the snow. The past 2 years, we’ve had a major storm toward the end of build season.

I love thunderstorms. Well, its better when I’m inside watching them, but its still cool being outside camping or something. I suppose some of that stems from my love of bass (not the fish). Thunder - kinda like nature’s ultimate subwoofer
Thunderstorms are cool…i prefer to watch lightning and hear thunder instead of seeing snow…uggg snow…i shiver every time i think about it…
I remember camping out in New Hampshire in the middle of Hurricane Bob back in '91.

Dave-O~ who is wishing for a white christmas:D
The cold is your friend. Why do you think I’m still wearing shorts?
