Are You Really Dreaming Of A 'White Christmas?'

If you're surprised by this weekend's weather forecast, you're not alone. The Charlotte area rarely gets snow in December. Nevertheless, I'm already hearing hopeful talk around town of the possibility a "white Christmas."

Charlotte has seen snow on Christmas Day only eleven times in the last 140 years. The last time it happened was 2010 and that was Charlotte's first white Christmas in 63 years.

Of course, there are just as many people around these parts who would be thrilled if they didn't see snow ever again. They dream of a green Christmas every year.

Which camp are you in, white Christmas or green Christmas? Or, to make an analogy from the 1974 animated holiday special, The Year Without a Santa Claus, are you a Snow Miser or a Heat Miser?
