Winter Storm Warning of 2010 might postpone 'Day After Christmas Sales'


Water Cooler logoIt looks like it might be a White Christmas after all.

According to www.forecast.weather.gov, there is a 100% percent chance of snow after 1am early Sunday morning. The South, Northeast, and Mid-Atlantic are the storm's prime targets.

Although local weather forecasters have gone on record saying that the winter of 2011 will not be as severe as the winter of 2010, this is not a very good start to say the least.

Philadelphia and South Jersey can also expect an accumulation of at least 5 to 10 inches of snow while facing up to 40 mile per hour wind gusts. Great................

Not only will these severe weather conditions possibly effect the outcome of the Sunday Night Football game between the Eagles vs Vikings, it will be interesting to see how this changes day after Christmas sales. Walmart is not open on Christmas day and neither is Best Buy, so you may have to wait a few days before you return or exchange some of those gifts. Even the slightest threat of a Winter Storm can understandebly cause panic. So storm or not, sales will most likely be extended.

Don't worry, it's not like those stores are going to cancel those sales. Whenever suitable weather returns, the stores will welcome you with open arms.

I hope you are enjoying the company you are keeping this Christmas, because chances are you might be stuck with them for an extra day or so!
