We had snow on November 29th in Kansas City.:biglaugh:

It got my family and I to talking about an old wive's tale (I think it is an old wive's tale) that the number of the day that you get snow you will have that many days that it snows.

Anyone know of this tale or whether it is an old wive's tale or not?:confused:

If that was a true or reasonably true wive's tale, that means if it Snows on 12/1 you will only have 1 day of snow? I think there might be something wrong with that picture, in my opinion. :lol:

True. It's regarding the very first snow of the season and the day it happened. I know we talked about this several years ago when the 1st sow happened in October (rare for our part of the country) and it was on something like the 19th. I believe we had 18 days of snow that season but got another snow the 1st week of April to make 19.

Then a couple of years later we had snow on the 3rd of November and we only had 3 snows.

This tends to come up as a topic of discussion every year for us and I would presume that it would have to be more viable in areas similar to my location where sometimes it snows a lot during winter and sometimes not....

i guess I could look it up on the net if I was so curious but have never done that.....just a strange topic to present to everyone.....:rolleyes:

So if I understand you, the day that it snows say, 12/24 that means that there will be 24 Total days of snow for the Winter Season, or 24 straight days of snow?

Added in: Does this include Ice Storms?

It is total days that it will snow for the season. Using your date of December 24th, there will be 24 days where it will snow.

As far as Ice storms:confused: I imagine that if it is not considered snow then it does not count towards the total. I'm guessing on that matter.:magic:

I hate to put a damper on this Wives Tale, but if we were to have Snow here in SoCal (City not Mountains) on the 24th day of December, I highly doubt that it would snow here in SoCal (City) for 24 days during our winter season (if you want to call 80-90 Degrees winter season). :notme:

Yes it has Snowed in the City in SoCal a long time ago. It lasted about 5 minutes.
