    People who shopped three jewelry stores in Maine and New Hampshire are eagerly awaiting word whether a White Christmas will mean holiday greenbacks.

    The Portsmouth Herald reports that roughly 400 Springer's Jewelers customers are due for a refund of purchases between Nov. 24 and Dec. 9 if it snowed 6 inches or more on Christmas Day in the Portsmouth area.

    All told, more than $900,000 is on the line, courtesy of a "Let it Snow" promotion.

    Springer's Vice President Zoe Beaulieu said the jeweler has never paid out in the 11 years of the promotion, but that may change this year.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
