HBO @ Noon: White Christmas

Bing Crosby didn’t have to dream of a white Christmas — he could bank on it. The crooner was from Spokane, a city that is among the most likely to have a white Christmas each year. According to weather experts, Spokane has a white Christmas about 70 percent of the time. In the United States, only a few high-latitude cities beat those odds: Duluth, Minn. (97 percent) Anchorage, Alaska, (90 percent), Marquette, Mich., (90 percent) and Concord, N.H. (87 percent). Crosby’s song tapped into a primal need for many living in the northern latitudes, where the notion of a white Christmas takes on mythic proportions/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Would you be disappointed if we didn't have a white Christmas?
