Yes, but I live in the south east. It will be around 65 degrees here at Christmas time. :/

I live in the desert southwest at high altitude, so we rarely get snow. But we've seen some changes to our climate in the past couple of years, the winters have been a lot colder and we are getting snow more frequently. We are expecting a big snowstorm tonight and tomorrow, so if the temps stay low for a couple of days it won't melt off and we might have a white Christmas. It would be the second one in the 35 years I have lived here. Before we moved out west I had a white birthday (Dec 23rd) and Christmas every year. Now it's very rare, but I will certainly at least be getting a white birthday this year.

@crowsnest: Me too. Looks like it is supposed to be warm and rainy by me.

I live in Arizona so any snow this whole Winter would be really nice!

I'll avoid the crowds at the resorts, but will get in some snow shoeing & have a nice big bonfire out back in the fire pit.

@jeeperwoot: We're avoiding the crowds, too. We're going to the Boy Scout Ranch to do our cross country skiing and snow boarding. We have some tubes too, so we plan to do some tubing with the kids and a few other families who are invited to go there. Tomorrow night we're having a nice bonfire and fun things for the kids to do.

I would love some snow up here in Chicago, like we typically have for Christmas. It's just not the same without it. Unfortunately, the weather doesn't look like it's going to make that happen this year. :(

Like @moondrake, I live in the southwest high desert (Albuquerque, NM to be exact). We've had snow off and on a couple of times which is great. We're expecting another storm this afternoon, which I'm hoping will stick around long enough for a white Christmas, but I'm not holding my breath. Some friends live on the other side of the mountain east of Albuquerque and the pics I've seen are GORGEOUS. The local ski resort has a 47" base, and it's been years since I've been skiing. Definitely gonna try and make it up next week!

@brotherhalo: We're going to be sharing the same storm this evening, I am in El Paso. At a mere 250 miles away, Albuquerque is the city nearest to us. (I guess Las Cruces has grown up to be a city now, but I will always think of it as a little town.) We have tentative plans to drive up to Ruidoso on a day trip during the holidays but it will depend on if we think we can get through in my Civic.

This could be the first time in my life time that there will be no snow for Christmas. Kind of doesn't have the Christmas feel this year. Hears hoping so a little snow.

vote-for2vote-against

@moondrake: Heh, if you think Cruces is a little town, then I can't imagine what you think of Alamogordo (where I grew up). I haven't been to Ruidoso in years during the winter, but from what my folks are telling me, both Cloudcroft and Ruidoso have gotten a good deal of snow from the past couple of storms. Good luck getting up there!

Not really. I think this has been the longest I've been able to comfortably and safely run outdoors. Once the snow starts piling up, the sidewalks and side streets I like to run on become very unsafe. My town apparently doesn't have much of a budget for snow removal and road salt.

No. I'm in Dallas. Idiocy starts bleeding out of the high rise buildings at a rate equal to the amount of snow falling out of the sky.

vote-for2vote-against

@brotherhalo: I am in Albuquerque with you brother. It has been an interesting season to say the least. I am waiting for the sky to fall any moment as I type this. We went down to Carlsbad 2 weeks ago and even those guys had some snow on the ground.

@moondrake - I will be in El Paso for New Years so keep in warmer there than here. :)

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have a 50% chance of precipitation on Christmas.

Too bad it will be in the 60's... lol

But there is still hope!

I'm always wishing for snow, but my state isn't known for its snow...

No snow for Detroit this year. My kids are very disappointed. Probably won't have a White New Year either.

I'm afraid of what this means for January -- we're going to get dumped! Or that we'll still have snow for Easter. We hunted Easter eggs in the snow in 2008.

@bkarlan: I think EP does have a higher average temp than Albuquerque. Las Cruces is always cooler than here. I love Las Cruces and especially Mesilla, but it still feels little to me. But El Paso is at 700,000 on the census so probably pushing a million in real residents and it still sometimes feels like a small town to me. It always surprises me to hear that we are bigger than cities like Boston and Detroit.

no. currently at my location it is in the 70's, perfect weather all week. frikin awesome

Snowed last year in Southern California, hoping for it again :D

It's already arrived here; if I'm lucky, it'll be gone in time for Christmas. I think I live near @misterron.

@moondrake: I will be there to watch GT play in the Sun Bowl

Yes please! That would make being in China for Christmas really special :)

I think today's tornado warnings were enough "weather" for this Florida boy.
