Hoping for a white Christmas?

They say it doesn't actually snow much in England but it started to snow last night and this morning there are inches of it everywhere! I'm in Seaford, Sussex so that's down south. I think things are looking good for a white Christmas! Don't forget your winter wellies.

We have a nice layer of snow on the ground here in Munich, Germany too.
But, apparenty the temperatures will go up again next week, so no white Christmas for us. 😞 The last time there was a white Christmas here was 25 years ago. There is generally more snow here, than in England where you are Stacy, but it seems to avoid Christmas day most years.

I've got my fingers crossed! I'm just happy to be able to walk around in it in general though. It's pretty magical. Reply to this

I hope it doesn't snow around Xmas day. I have to do a fair bit of driving on Xmas Eve/Boxing Day and snow = bad times. Reply to this

I'm from Sussex too and am going home at the weekend to spend Christmas there, I hope the snow lasts! We have quite a bit of snow in Kyiv already, but I could do without the minus 18 temperature that comes with it!

Hi guys, I'm living in Brighton, so a Sussex guy too! My walk to work this morning was beautiful, everything looked so different it almost felt like traveling! Hoping for some more snow tonight so I can enjoy a special walk on the downs tomorrow.

It's supposed to snow several inches tonight in New York City and another 5-9" (12-22ish cm) tomorrow. I don't mind the snow so long as the airports are up and running as I'm heading back to Seattle for the holidays! No snow in the forecast there although we did get quite the white Christmas last year. Heaviest snow downtown in over a decade Reply to this

I am so envious. even though its already cold from where I am at right now, there is no snow. well, there wont be. I really would love to experience some white Christmas. I mean, I tried making an snow angel in mud and it got me thinking that it would be more fun if it were snow... Reply to this

Haven't had one yet, and it'll be a summer Christmas this year too. Definitely want to have a white Christmas one year, but in a country which really gets into the spirit of it (obviously Japan doesn't). These photos are from the closest I've got (3 years ago) - everything was white a few days after.

We have -20 C here in Munich tonight, so the snow wont be melting yet. 😊 Reply to this

It is really looking like Christmasland outside my livingroom windown now. Inches of snow on everything and golfball sized flakes comming down.

Apparently, temperatures will go up to 2 degrees celcius today and 7 degrees tomorrow, so no white Christmas day. Right now, it is difficult to believe that all this snow will be gone in a couple of days. I keep hoping the weather people made a mistake. Reply to this

Have you ever seen real snow at all, Krisited?

You are in the Phillipines, arent you?

It snowed here, in Daegu, Korea, yesterday for the first time this winter! Although it was only a few flurries it was still great! It was also nice because I'm currently missing out on a bunch of snow at home! I really hope it snows some more this week. Reply to this

I'm jealous of the snow. 😞

But no White Christmas for me. I just couldn't stand the cold. It's far too cold for my liking, especially since I'm in a tropical country.

I have to admit I'm starting to realise that as beautiful as it is, snow is bloody dangerous! It's ok the first day it falls because it's all soft and lovely, but 3 days on every path and road is like an ice rink. Luckily I haven't fallen yet but we did have to shift a stuck car! i still like the snow though. Just not the ice that it turns into! Reply to this

We still have plenty of snow here, but it is slowly melting. A snowman my daughter built in the garden just fell over and knocked over the bicycle in the first photo of msg 15

...but 3 days on every path and road is like an ice rink.


Yeah, this is a situation we will have here soon. It is going to rain on the snow tomorrow, and then the wet snow will freeze during the night and then everything will be covered in a layer of ice. It is not too bad after somebody puts sand or salt on it, but if you go out before they get it done...

Things get really difficult when there are a few feet of snow in the ground. If people walk or drive on it before the snow ploughs and people with shovels move it, then there are bumps and hills of hard snow everywhere and you cant get down steps because they turn into an ice slope so you have to hang onto the railing at the side and slide down while hanging on with your arms.

One more thing I don't like about the snow is the extra cost of buying antifreeze for your car. lol Reply to this

I visited Banff, Canada about two weeks ago for my first real winter experience. Being from Australia it was quite an awakening to a different side of life. It's a totally different world at -20c (-4f), good for a visit but i don't think i could live in it.
Maybe one day i might entertain a white christmas but at the moment i'm enjoying the swimming pool. Reply to this
