Hi everyone.  I am sitting next to a rather odiferous pine tree here, and perhaps predictably was thinking about Christmas.  We all come from such different parts of the world, and although Christmas is generally associated with snow, I have never had snow at Christmas - it is always summer in New Zealand in December!  For me is it hot, muggy (humid) weather, barbeques and singlets.  Who else is in summer, who is just cold, and who has snow?

Twenty years ago Austrian winter meant snow, nowadays that is in no way guaranteed. We've had snow for a few days a few weeks earlier, but it lasted merely a weekend - I made some flat photos then and also from the outside, there you can see that there was actually snow :) - But since then it's gone again, nevertheless the weather forecasters say that its getting colder again and that this could mean snow during Christmas. But as I said: Don't count on it. Snow disappears very fast lately as it's getting very warm again.

I already told that story last year, but we usually have a Christmas Tree on the balcony, and last year the chocolate melted in December because it was so extremely warm... That was unthinkable twenty years ago - but as you can see from the Bali conference these days there's always a way to ignore reality. Just close your eyes and ears and you're fine, eh?  buck

Word up, Arti.  I remember the six foot blizzard that swamped Washington D.C. almost eight years ago (wow).  Yet I don't remember much of a snow since then.  A few inches here or there.  Almost always a snow day.

Anywho!  I had snow last week, but it's since died down, melted, and all the salt I poured on the steps were probably put to use for only one night.  Oh well.  I pray for more snow!

Belgium is much like Austria. We used to have snow in winter, now not so much. I can't remember the last time we had a white christmas... It is very cold at the moment though :)

Here in Croatia we usually have snow once a year, but rarely on Christmas,it seems that the snow here likes the end of January better. It's also pretty warm for this time of the year, the temperatures, here, on the coast reach below 0 only in the early mornings.

Here in Korea we just had our first snowfall last week - fluffy, powdery, coated all the trees - but was gone in a couple of days from most places.

It's cold and clear, sunny and crisp - really beautiful...

Alas, in three days I'll be in the even colder, depressingly gray and permanently overcast Canadian winter... (southern Ontario, though, not the worst place I could be) for the next two months.  Hope I don't succumb to S.A.D....

I live right next to the Rocky Mountains. Snow days for us is 2+ feet of snow, as long as it keeps snowing too fast for the plows to clear. Snow days for everyone else is some chilly weather and a few patches of black ice. *scoffs*

Although, if you've ever been to middle America after fresh sleet, the trees glaze over and look like they are made of transparent ice! It's really cool, but I've only seen the phenomena twice.

Yeah... anyways, the high temps are around 24 and the lows are around 0-, depending on what kind of day. Regardless, it's always sunny, which is such a delight when you get snow-blinded...

Personally, when I turn 18, I'm moving to the coast!

It goes in cycles.. In the 80's almost every year was a "brown christmas"... but the 90's and the the 2K years have been more snow and long periods of cold for the most part... even with chinooks... we are naive in thinking that in 100+ years of temperature recording, that we can draw any serious conclusions on the state of the planet.... but that just MHO

Also, we're just making the Human Egocentric Mistake again, claiming thet the "normal climate" is the one that suits us best. But geologically speaking we're still barely recovering from the last ice age, and temperatures ought to be rising untill i'm living in a subtropical swamp again, à la prehistoric times.
