The old movie ‘White Christmas’ with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye is one of my favorite Christmas movies. It is a great mix of good old music, slapstick, and good ol’ Christmas cheer. However, given the latest round of snow piling up here in Portland, I’m rethinking this movie as my favorite.

Growing up having a white Christmas was the dream. We’d pray for it, hope for it and invariably be disappointed when it didn’t materialize. Now, however, a White Christmas just means treacherous driving and family not being able to make it into town.

Thus, this is one northwesterner who is now saying ‘Bah Humbug’ to all this snow. I’m praying for rain!
