    Looks like a White Christmas is coming in Arkansas. Was forcasted for tonight, but rain turning to sleet already and especting snow to start anytime now. Weatherman says could be any where from 6-10 inches.

      Wow, we woke up here in Chicago to green grass and gray skies.  Around 11:30am it started to snow and left us a dusting but not enough to cover all of the green.  We're to expect some more later tonight and only up to 2 inches tomorrow.  This is some funny weather patterns.

    Alas, no snow for paradigmsearch. But I can step outside and see it on the mountain tops. And that is as close as I'll ever get to it. Then again, maybe this year will be a first. Come to think of it, I've been hailed on a couple times during previous winters.

    The freezing rain has stopped for a while. The snow part is on it's way though.

    I just took my dog for a walk in a very cold rain. I wish it was sunny or snowing - I don’t like this in-between weather.

    Here in Northern Michigan, we currently have 3 inches of snow on the ground, and under that is about an inch and a half of slushy ice. I went to scrape off my car to go to Christmas dinner at a neighbors house, and there was about 2 inches of ice under the snow on my car. But, we are quite lucky, just 60 miles north of here, they had six inches of snow on the ground already, with 2 feet of snow added to that in just one day. But, if you go 60 miles south of here, there is no snow. They have been getting mostly rain in Grand Rapids and to the south.

    Michigan weather has been pretty crazy lately. Last year we had a very mild January and February, and in March we got hit by one major blizzard after another. We even had a winter Cyclone, which dumped 3 feet of snow in less than 6 hours, and had the loudest thunder, and the scariest lightning I had ever seen. They say that was because the storm clouds were 20,000 feet lower than they would normally be, which made the storms that much more dangerous. It certainly was crazy.

    I wish I could get some snow sad the closest thing I get here in Florida to snow is the stuff that collects on the walls of the freezer

    I'm in Canada.  I wish, just for one Christmas, we could have no snow.  We've had over 60 cm so far this winter.

    A few years ago we had our first white Christmas in 40-something years. Now only 3-4 years later and we had another one! It didn't last long, though. Just little bits of white left today.

    Here in New York it started to snow but the snow melted to water creating a watery rain-ness. Then today its been raining, its just not cold enough or it'd be snowing.

    This is what it could have been like. The aftermath of the Michigan Winter Cyclone. 3 feet of snow in 6 hours. I just got off the phone with my partner in Grand Rapids, and they are under a blizzard warning, 60 miles away. It isn't doing anything here, but the windchill is 7 degrees.

    Man, I wish I was you guys. I live here in South Florida and today I walked outside in shorts to a nice warm 78 degree morning. I haven't seen snow in almost 8 years and I miss it like crazy. I'm originally from new york and it kills me sometimes that I cant have a white christmas. Oh how I miss new york city =/.

      My sister lives in Milton Florida. I talked to her on the phone on Christmas eve, and she said it was frosty there in the morning, and 3 in the afternoon it was up near 80. I have also been in Orlando in February, were it was 22 in the morning, and 90 by noon. I thought Michigan had weird weather!

        I seriously don't know what it is about Florida. One second it can rain heavily for 5 minutes, the other it could be sunny as day, I guess I've learned to deal with it after being here for 8 years.

          The weirdest thing for me, is being at the beach at Lake Michigan on a crystal clear day, and it's raining. The locals tell me, that if it is raining anywhere along the lake with a strong breeze, the wind blows in the rain. It's only happened a couple times that I have been there. But it's very strange.

        I don't know what it is about Florida. one second it will pour like a flood's coming and 5 minutes later its bright as day.  I guess I'm used to it now after living here 8 years, lol.

          Yeah you can't really wear winter clothes here. Just wear a heavy coat in the morning over your summer clothes because it will be 80 by noon

    Snowed for a short while in New York; however, the heavy rains have melted away the snow.  Oh, alas.......

    Northern Wis. snow on the ground not a lot. The roads are clear that makes me happy. The temp is 15. I would gladly send this snow to anyone who wants it.

    Finally got power last evening and phone service this morning. Still have around 100,000 people without power though. Gas stations that got power back on were rationing gas and the lines were very long! Grocery stores have many empty shelves.
