A few years ago, we had a white Christmas which is unusual for my area of Ohio. So what do meteorologists consider a white Christmas? There must be at least an inch of snow on the ground. Sometimes we get some flurries or a dusting but nothing significant.
In 2004, we had snow and ice on the ground. That Christmas was truly was a white Christmas. I was pregnant with my youngest and my oldest was 17 months old. We couldn’t get out of our driveway/ cul de sac because of how much snow/ ice we got that Christmas. Our neighbors checked on us during the time because they had a 4 wheel drive. I think they got us butter or something like that for us.
I just looked up the amount of snow we got that Christmas. We had 16 inches which is unthinkable for our area.
Hubby still talks about that winter and how we got all the snow.
This year, we escaped our area and went on a socially distance trip to the beach. There is NO snow on the beach. My area was predicted to get snow but not enough to be classified as a white Christmas. The forecast has changed to be cold NOT white. They are supposed to have a high of 21 degrees.
I wish I had photos of that white Christmas. It was a time prior to digital photos being common. Plus being 2 months pregnant and a mother of a toddler, photos of the snow was the least of my worries.
