White Christmas?

Posted by Non-Hamster on December 23rd, 2009

Will you be having a White Christmas this year?  Now I am not a hamster, I realize that there's a lot of places (most, come to think of it) where the classic white Christmas with all the snowy scenes simply isn't going to happen and there's a pretty good number of places where it's kind of a given that by Dec 25th there WILL be plenty of snow on the ground but there's quite a number of places where every year it's a question that a lot of people are thinking about because it's never really certain.

For example, around here it does happen once in a while though most of the snow we get is usually in January and February.  This year the weather guys are talking about a bunch of precipitation, some of which is falling now.  The question is what form is it going to take?  Currently it's a cold rain, though since the temps have been dipping into the 30's and below at night, there's a good chance that some of it's going to freeze at least.

Then there's the dreaded "Wintery Mix" of freezing rain, sleet, and snow.  When that starts falling you'd better hope your Blue Advantage is up to date because if you have to end up out on the road in the middle of it there's just too many people who don't have the first clue about driving in slippery conditions.

It never ceases to amaze me that people get out on the road and act like they can drive the same way in snow, ice and slush as they do on dry pavement.  These are usually the same people that wake up in an emergency room somewhere wondering what happened.

In any case, if you DO have snow, ice, slush, or even just rain, remember that wet and or slick roads mean that you really need to drive slower and be a LOT more careful because not only can YOU have an accident, the guy in the next car could have one too... plowing into you in the process.
