It's not about climate change, the color of Mars, or about which baboons have red asses. It's just a thread about the weather. If you can keep the discussion to that, I would really appreciate it. If you can't, then I have a great suggestion for you. Hell is thought to have rampant global warming, so you might want to go down there and check it out.

    thanks Dan, Let's see if I can bring it back....I just moved to SC last year, until then I lived just north of Baltimore, and I grew up in Lansing MI....So I know what huge snow is, and I know what that region usually gets.

    My Brother In Law said that they had 32" last week, and were now forcasting a foot or more with this new one. Salt is running out, and power to 250,000 BGE customers remains out....This is terrible! I pray for them.

    It is really sad how little the DC area prepares for this. I mean, it's not like we're in the deep south where snow is a rarity. I like Steven Pearlstein's take on this, which was in the Washington Post today:

    "I realize there are lots of problems that cannot be solved just by throwing money at them, but snow removal is not one of them."

    Heh, I am in Ionia MI. Right next door to where you grew up. We got about 8 inches yesterday, not bad but made alot worse due to the wind. I hate winter.

    Love the fair, and there used to be a little bar off on the right as you came into town headed for the fair, that made the best burgers I have ever had!

    My Dad grew up in Mt. Pleasant....I had family around there at one time.

    I hate winter also, guess that is one major reason I keep tracking south....

    Anyway, small world.

    Huh? So global warming means that temperatures are warmer? Please enlighten me. *rolls eyes*

    This snow sucks. I am stunned that my 2-year-old isn't stir crazy today. The winds are so bad that I can't take him outside.

    I will never understand why this area has been unable to deal with snow. I have lived here since 1995 and there has been no improvement.

    You mean warming doesn't mean warming?

    School's out all week, meaning 10 snow days so far this year.


    This is already the snowiest winter ever recorded for D.C., with 56 inches of snow having fallen (and probably more than that where I live, since we get it worse than they do).
