Posted on 12/25/2010 5:50:28 PM PST by Jet Jaguar
A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for all of the Midlands until late Sunday night. We will see some snow during the last few hours of Christmas day and overnight into Sunday morning.
You guys are getting a little taste of what we got last week here in California; over 15 feet of snow.
For decades the democrat mainstream media has been saying that capitalism is destroying the planet by causing global warming. Now everywhere it is freezing. Yet people still believe the democrat mainstream media.
Global warming is a hoax. That is why the democrat mainstream media changed the name of global warming to climate change.The democrat sheep still believe the liberal media lies about global warming.
We had a ‘White Christmas’ this year here in SWVA. I could probably count on 3 fingers how many times it has happened. Snow isn’t rare here, but it just never seems to happen on Christmas Eve/Day.
Was great to see!
I’ll be glad when the globe warms.
Those of us in central/northern Wisconsin are right at home.
I love the snow and cold, it makes it real hard on
the warm weather-illegals and subterranean terroritsts.
You okay? We’ve got a whole lotta nothin’ here in the Charlotte suburbs, just a sweet-potato throw from SC.
Just cold and rain so far.
Same here ... 33 and drizzle. The catz keep going out and coming right back ... we were supposed to turn the warm on so they could hang out with the gang all night in comfort.
Upstate SC about 2 inches. kids already gone sledding. more coming down
Snowing here in Va Beach.
We got over 12 inches of rain!
Usually we can count “barbecue” as an option for Christmas dinner. Not this year! Dark, cold, overcast.
Still snowing here in Ga. Inch or two so far. First white Christmas since like 1882.
It’s that global warming! :)
Tomorrow: Cloudy skies with a few snow showers later in the day. High 27F. Winds NE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow 30%.
Tomorrow night: Windy with snow showers evolving to a steady snow. Low 23F. Winds NNE at 25 to 35 mph. Chance of snow 90%. Snow accumulating 4 to 6 inches. Winds could occasionally gust over 40 mph.
Monday: Snow along with gusty winds at times. High 28F. Winds N at 25 to 35 mph. Chance of snow 90%. Significant snow accumulation possible. Winds could occasionally gust over 40 mph. Low 10F.
Got my tractor/snow blower prepped and pointed in the right direction.
It has been an amazing December. We got over 15 feet of snow her in the mountains of the High Sierra and some areas of Southern California got 17 inches of rain.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
I was driving in back of a Mazda Z years ago on black ice. How we didn’t crash is a mystery, as the RWD just spun the guy down I-5 like a slinky.
It was black ice, and man, that stuff is way beyond snow plows.
I've been watching the snow front creep down the state. Kinda neat to watch here. Purple=snow.
That’s too much.
The global warming alarmists have been saying global warming is causing global freezing. It’s a win-win for them, so they hope.
32F and light snow in Newport News, VA at 9:55 pm.
The Hybrid View is best.
32*F here in Rock Hill, and Snowing at 10:11pm
This is the first white Christmas in history for Columbia.
I looked up “global warming” in the dictionary, and one of the synonyms is “ice age”.
Yes. They're Global-Warming-Hoax Deniers.
I’m in Matthews (just south of Charlotte). We’ve got maybe an inch on the grass.
Indian Trail. I just looked out the back door, and we have a bit of accumulation on the grill cover and the picnic table.
In 1969 we left Roanoke Christmas morning to go to my grandparents at Smith Mountain Lake. It snowed about 18” by the end of the day. It was 4 days before we finally got home due to the snow drifts.
I remember as a kid growing up in the 70s and early 80s living just south of Charlotte in SC when there was any snow, all the local news channels would be prophets of doom until it melted, usually within 2 days. Of course all of the bread and milk had to be bought out as well. That was usually a good part of the coverage.
The emergency shopping is a major joke in the NC Forum every time Winter Weather is predicted. “How many loaves of gread do you have? How many gallons of milk?”
Wow!! That must have been enough for a White Christmas, AND a white month of January. That’s a bunch of snow for the Roanoke area. They usually get a bit less than we do, due to the difference in elevation.
As a matter of fact, I’ve always heard my father, grandfather, uncle, and other folks who were around talk about that Winter of 1969. Wasn’t that the one where it snowed at least 1 foot every week for nearly 6 weeks, with the temperature rarely getting above freezing? My uncle said that the snow was over 10 feet high in places, and they had literal tunnels going through the snow in the yard so they could get around. The snow drifts were over the roofs of many homes.
When I originally posted, I neglected to mention that I’m only in my 30s, so others may have a larger historical reference than I do. I’m glad my children were able to experience this White Christmas. Being so rare, I’m sure they will always remember it.

I’m just South of Charlotte across the NC/SC line. Some things never chamge.
When there is even a dusting of snow in the Charlotte area, the correct answer to both questions is however much one can afford.
First Christmas Snow since 93 in Nashville.
That is just "natural weather variation"; a record hot July 4th is "Destructive Anthropogenic Climate Change".
The sky is falling! THE SKY IS FALLING!
I never knew snow was so rare in the carolinas and tenn.
Having lived most my entire life in NE/IA and vacationed in UT, CO, the dakotas, MN, and MO, all I know is snowy winters. You guys just don’t know what winter is until you’ve seen a north central nebraska ice storm or northwest iowa thunder-snow. You get out in the badlands of NE, SD, and WY and if the wind blows hard, just an inch of snow is a disaster. And then there’s MN. It gets so cold up there your car will barely make enough heat to keep the ice off a fist sized area ON THE INSIDE OF YOUR windshield. Tank driving experience comes in handy.
Just rain down here in the Low Country.
You forgot to include your Ping List.
Meh. Thanks for the heads-up.
What with the lack of sunspots and the Gulf Loop switched off...
those of us in the know are preparing for the coming ice age...
...in which millions will die...
the good news is that dims, rats, progressives, liberals, democrats and communists
will go first.
Now showing snow forecasted at around 10:00 AM for Charleston, S’ville, and Myrtle Beach.
Sho’ nuff. Ah well, it’ll be gone in a day or so.
Snow now. About an inch.
Yesterday, we were at my in-laws in Marietta (SC)and it snowed quite a bit while we were there.
First white Christmas around here since '63.
