The Weather Outside is Frightful
Winter officially starts December 21 and kids of all ages are singing "Let it Snow!"
Although the lyrics of this still popular 1945 song speak of frightful winter weather, excitement usually greets December snows.
Kids and not-so-young kids bundle in warm clothing and head outdoors. It's not just child's play to romp in the snow, and it's practically a rite of passage to get into an occasional all-out, no-holds-barred snowball fight! It doesn't cost anything to make snowballs ... or to make a snow angel.
Blizzards Will Have Names
The Weather Channel is taking on a new responsibility: naming winter blizzards.
The new naming system will use Greek and Roman names. The first three are Athena, Brutus and Caesar. The names will always be used in alphabetical order.
Storm naming will occur no more than three days before a winter storm's expected impact. The most important factors will be expected snowfall, ice accumulations and wind speed, say analysts writing in USA Today.
First Nights Proliferate
First Night is an artistic and cultural celebration on New Year's Eve, taking place from afternoon until midnight. Some cities have all their events during the celebration outside, but some cities have events that are hosted indoors.
They celebrate the community's local culture, often featuring music, dance, comedy, art and more.
