Who would vote yes on moving Christmas to January 25?

I'm down for more white Christmases

 

 

Maybe early March then?

Yes good snow but it has to be closer to New Years

 

Yes of course. I overlooked that important detail.

It took until March, but I finally got a snow pack to last more than a week.

Was thinking the same thing yesterday. Even after last nights rain the ground is still covered with 3 or 4 inches.

The Greek Orthodox Church tends to make a bigger deal out of Candlemas which is a Christmas related holiday, namely it celebrates the end of the season of Epiphany. Its date is Feb 2nd. The Armenian Patriarchate of Jerusalem celebrates Christmas on what would be January 19th of our calendar. The precedent is certainly set.

Candlemas it is. Kick the varmint to the curb.

Reporting back from Jay Peak, it was all time.  Here's me dropping a 15-20ft icefall on the face of Jay, into bottomless powder.  This area on the mountain collected all the windblown snow so it took the 2 feet and turned it into 4.

I am really glad we that winter is basically behind us now. It didn't live up to expectations and we hope for much better next winter. Looking forward to hopefully getting some good severe/heavy rain events as we head into the spring and summer. The next 10 days look rather quiet so enjoy it.

They do? Thursday looks like a coastal bomb. Rain but still. Then there is a bomb off the SE Coast then another potential major storm middle of next week.  Looks like one of the more active patterns for the East the entire past 4 months lol.

Yeah so much for that. Looks like DT (Wxrisk) will be wrong as well.
