White Christmas 2010

Snow map North America 25 Dec 10 (courtesy NOAA)

Technically speaking, Moncton just barely had a White Christmas by definition… 2 cm of snow lying on the ground on Christmas Day… that is the official definition from Environment Canada.

Much of the Maritimes, including Truro, NS where I spent the holiday, had a Green Christmas or barely a white dusting on the ground.

Meantime many areas of the American South including Georgia and the Carolinas which seldom even see snow, had a White Christmas.

Atlanta, Georgia had 3.3 cm of snow on Christmas Day – the first time the city had a White Christmas since 1882.
