I was going to wait til after Thanksgiving to start posting these, but the verse of this one is just too appropriate to the current weather in Alaska!

White Christmas (1986, to the tune of “White Christmas)

The sun is shining, the snow is slush,
The willow and birch trees sway.
There’s never been such a day
At Christmastime in A.K.
But it’s December the twenty-fourth
Where is the weather that should be north?

I’m hearing of a white Christmas
Just like the ones we used to know.
Where the treetops glisten, and drivers listen
To hear snowplows in the snow,
I’m hearing of a white Christmas
The jet stream’s wandering tonight,
All the east is chilly, but bright,
And the Christmas in Florida is white.

These Geoophysical Christmas Carols will be posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the rest of the holiday season. Enjoy! And sing along!
