It began snowing in Memphis with just seven minutes left in Christmas day, according to official observations at Memphis International Airport.
Although that doesn’t count as a white Christmas according to the MemphisWeather.Net blog, part of the Internet media entity created by Erik Proseus under the umbrella of Cirrus Weather Solutions.
Here is a link to the entry which has all of the details of the Christmas snow we almost missed.
There is also another link there to an entry going into Christmas that talks about our one and still only (at least since records started being kept in 1889) white Christmas in 1913. It even goes on to detail the eight Christmases with trace amounts and Memphis Christmases in which there was snow on the ground that morning from the day before – the warmest Memphis Christmas and the coldest Memphis Christmas.
Give it a look, match up the dates to those long ago snow pictures in your trove of family Christmas pictures whose year you’ve forgotten and write it down somewhere.
