We didn't have snow in VA
for Christmas. I would say I miss living in upstate NY, but I am not sure they had snow either.
As for weathermen, I always laugh at our local guys b/c they will get on the TV in the morning and talk about there is a "chance" of rain so better take an umbrella to work and it is pouring so hard that I am drenched after walking the dog. I always think...um did you look out the window lately?
