WHY DOES GOD HATE BARACK OBAMA?

A white White House Christmas looks likely as storm bears down: Only 12 times in weather-recording history have winter storms brought a white Christmas to Washington. (CS Monitor, 12/18/09)

With Saturday's snowfall expected to range from 5 to 15 inches or more, and with cold weather expected into next week, there should still be icicles hanging from the Truman Balcony on Dec. 25. The White House grounds likely will remain a snowy expanse.

That’s rare here in D.C., which every new president discovers is a more Southern city than he had thought. According to the National Weather Service, in the Washington area the chances of waking up on Christmas morning with snow on the ground are only 13 percent.

But Decoder believes that even that statistic overstates D.C.’s lack of wintriness. In 1964 it was 72 degrees here on Christmas Day. Whenever snow is in the forecast, residents stampede food stores, snatching up milk and power bars as if their lives – or even more important, their careers – depended on them.
