No White Christmas in Asheville?

This blog will be on vacation until 12/26/07, our warmest regards for the holiday.

Well, the Winter Solstice occurs today, 12/22/07, the shortest day of the year. Fittingly, The Citizen Times reported on predictions and some historical data about snow during the holidays in our region. The weather for the next few days will be too warm, and too dry for snow, in fact:
Since Bing Crosby first crooned the Irving Berlin song, ā€œIā€™m Dreaming of a White Christmas,ā€ in 1941, downtown Asheville has seen a measurable snowfall on the holiday only nine times in the past 66 seasons, according to the National Climatic Data Center.
Asheville sits at 2,288 feet above sea level, and whether a person in Western North Carolina experiences snow has a great deal to do with elevation. The altitude in this part of the world can change by 3,000 feet in a matter of miles, so it is possible that the white stuff will make an appearance for some.

Given the ongoing drought, we could use some water from the sky, in any form.

The local paper was also kind enough to post the Holiday Closings in the area from now through January 1, 2008.
