BOSTON (CBS) – Are you dreaming of a White Christmas? Like it or not, you have to admit that a little bit of snow around the holidays certainly helps to get you in the spirit.
Last year was one of the more bizarre holiday seasons: we actually had a white Halloween and a brown Christmas! In fact, after the freak Halloween storm, we didn’t have any accumulating snowfall in Boston until mid-January.
But, just two years ago, it was the exact opposite: a snow blitz for the ages began in mid-December and didn’t let up for six straight weeks. It wasn’t just a white Christmas that year, it was a whiteout. By the end of December, 2010 Boston had nearly two feet of snow on the ground.
