White Christmas in Baltimore? Just a Dream
After riding around for the last couple of weeks and listening off and on to mostly dead people singing about ‘Dreaming of a White Christmas’, I thought I would check to see when we had a truly ‘White Christmas’ and found that it was back in 1966! In fact, history says that we have about a 10% chance of a White Christmas in Baltimore. Even Allegheny County in Western Maryland only has about a 28% chance of snow on Christmas day.
So after listening to Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, Elvis Presley and many others pining for a ‘White Christmas’, if you are looking for a snowy Christmas, you’ll probably have to head to another location because the odds are you won’t see the white snowy stuff in Baltimore on December 25th. Now perhaps if they moved Christmas to February, you’ll have a much better chance of seeing snow as that is the snowiest time of year in this part of the world.
So with that in mind, once more for the most successful song in history!
